Walsall Freedom Programme Training September 2015 #NOMORE

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

“This training expands your knowledge of domestic violence, its impact and the way we perceive the victim and dominator. It dispels myths and explains in a way that all who attend can understand. It also unpicks all the areas in a sensitive way. I will recommend it to everyone.”

Child Intervention Targeted Worker


“A very informative and thought provoking course that has highlighted the different aspects of the faces of the perpetrator, their thoughts and values, belief’s, where they originate from and how they are reinforced within society. I shall be sharing the book and contents with friends. The course itself was well presented with a friendly and professional approach.”

“A well-presented, informative course that has given me the knowledge/skills to support women attending the course. It has made me more aware of the impact of domestic abuse and the far-reaching effects it has.”

It also has lots of times to laugh and feel united, meaning if life is hard and traumatic, there is light at the end of the tunnel and a voice. Excellent opportunity to be the person that can put it all in place.”
