Improving the understanding people have of the issues surrounding domestic abuse is an important part of the work we do.
With domestic abuse affecting around 10% of the UK workforce, it is crucial that the business community is made aware of the business case for learning about domestic abuse. Every year domestic abuse costs the UK economy £1.9 billion and we know that 75% of people who experience abuse are targeted at work by their abuser.
All employers have a duty of care and are responsible for the physical and emotional health and safety of their employees. However, those experiencing abuse will typically be disciplined, or in extreme circumstances can lose their jobs, as a result of employers misinterpreting higher absence levels, poor time keeping or reduced productivity.
For those employers wishing to develop their understanding of domestic abuse, we are now offering a series of business breakfast briefing and networking sessions.

What Delegates Have Said About Helen’s Training
“Helen was commissioned to provide training when I worked at Housing21. A potentially dry subject was brought to life by her engaging style. She was professional, warm and possesses a great sense of humour. In short it was a pleasure to be a participant on her course and to work alongside her on another project” – Gerri Green, HR Projects Manager at Campbell Tickell
