Clare Walker Consultancy delivers Freedom Programme facilitator training across the UK. And on occasion in partnership with Freedom Programme Charity here we asked delegates: What would you tell a friend or colleague about this training? This is what Liverpool had to say in May this year… 

Great training course- Excellent facilitation! I learned lots to take forward into my role, I feel so much more prepared. Brilliant resources, and so empowering. What a great opportunity to be offered, thank you for a great 3 days

SANCTUARY OFFICER

 

Really informative, helps to get you into your role, and helps you to see it from your clients point of view.

CHILDRENS AND FAMILIES COURSEWORKER

 

Its so good, its so informative, it gives you an insight of the dominator and the victim.

CASE WORKER  

 

I found the training very useful and I picked up on ways to improve my practise. I enjoyed trying out the content of the programme with my group- it gave me a real feel of what I will be going into with the DA survivors.

CRISIS PREVENTION

 

Highly informative, excellent facilitators, and priceless information given during the 3 days. Great pace, I learned a lot about DA and myself at the same time. Thank you for your heard work and time!

SOCIAL WORKER

 

Well worth attending the training, I am seriously impressed at how much I was able to learn after 20 years of experience in the DA field! I’ve taken away lots of ideas of how to encourage women, not just at my group, but friends and family alike. Thanks I really enjoyed the course.

DOMESTIC ABUSE SUPPORT WORKER

 

The training programme was fantastic, you really learn so much more. It was a lot to take on board, and hard to hear at times, but absolutely worth doing. The facilitators were welcoming and sensitive to the subject, they really helped.

COURT SUPPORT

 

Very informative, thought provoking / reflective, I would definitely recommend attending the training.

SOCIAL WORKER

 

Very informative, enjoyable and saddening at the same time, It was good to work with a team to practise our group delivery. The facilitators were excellent, I felt relaxed and comfortable with them

CHILD PROTECTION MIDWIFE

 

That you need to read the books!! I realised I needed to be open, and non- judgemental, and will take this with me to my practise. This training will highlight issues, or scars of your own life, but this means you can connect with the client on a more genuine level. It was a great group setting.

A good mix of professionals, and a great insight into the tactics of a perpetrator. Good facilitation with incorporated different learning styles.

POLICE OFFICER

 

Yes I found it really interesting and informative. Fantastic trainers!!
