Domestic Abuse Training Day

Feedback from our first ocn Level 3 Domestic Abuse Awareness training was wonderful. Thank you to all of our Crossroads Trust volunteers, mentors and peer mentors as well as our guests from other organisations. We were pleased to welcome Ruth Jones OBE from the National Centre for the Study and Prevention of Violence and Abuse to deliver this training alongside myself. Ruth shares our values about inclusion, in believing that people have the capacity to change and that offering individuals support and encouragement enables our community to be safer, warmer and more inclusive.

We are pleased to have a growing link with both the University of Worcester and the University of Birmingham who are also interested in our peer mentoring programmes of engaging individuals leaving prison or those struggling to integrate in our North Warwickshire community.
