Virtual training session to raise awareness of domestic abuse
Main article content
Are you a hairdresser or beauty therapist – or someone who works with the general public?
Join us for a virtual, one-hour training session this Friday, May 14 at 7.30pm.
The session will guide you through the signs to spot which may indicate somebody is a victim of domestic abuse and particularly the more subtle elements of coercion and control.
With the difficulties brought about by the pandemic and the stresses and strains of three Covid lockdowns, recognising the signs and symptoms of domestic abuse has never been more important. So, although #Cutitout is for the beauty industry, we would also encourage other professionals to join us. If you’re an NHS worker, doctor, nurse, vet or anyone involved in personal contact with the general public then please join us.
You’ll be able to get advice on how to support clients and patients - what to say, what to avoid saying and what help is available locally and nationally. Support your clients and patients and provide them with pathways to help and advice.
The training session will be delivered by Chief Inspector Julie Mead, PCSO Nadia Norman and hairdresser Stacey Fotheringham.
