Hear’s just a few testimonials from delegates in Derby, March 2015.


Derby says #NOMORE to domestic abuse at Freedom Programme Training

Delegates were asked; “What would you tell a friend or colleague about this training?”

A very big thank you for the training in Derby. It was possibly the best DV training I have attended, and given I usually work with perpetrators, it was refreshing to have training in which the beliefs etc was stated in the first person. This made it feel real. I am very much looking forward to delivering the programme to our female offenders at probation, many of whom have a history of DV and their experiences of victimisation have impacted on the criminality.

Truly an eye-opening course that is full of real life stories that have impact on you the minute you hear the stories that you are told. Although it was an emotional rollercoaster of a few days it is certainly a positive and inspiring experience in regards to learning ways to help women who go through what they are and to know that the Freedom Programme has such a positive impact on women who attend the 12 week course. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, each person has to recognise and accept what is happening to them to get there.

Thank you for 3 days of really thought provoking training.  Being a survivor myself (DA when growing up) wasnt sure how I might take to it, but glad to say although it made me sad, I also better appreciate mums reasons for staying, ie, she had little choice…or so she thought!!




I thoroughly enjoyed the training, I feel much more confident about talking to people who have experienced or are currently experiencing domestic abuse. It was useful to look at the characteristics to understand and identify potential perpetrators and to help the women recognize the warning signs. Clare is engaging, compassionate and inspirational and delivered difficult subject matter with a lightness that still fully acknowledges the seriousness of the subject matter.
