Behind Closed Doors
About the CPD course
A comprehensive; structured training programme which provides volunteer participants with a safe; interactive environment in which to learn and understand the essential elements of supporting victims of domestic violence and abuse. Delivered one-day per week over 7 weeks; this programme gradually builds to provide the knowledge and key skills necessary to provide a meaningful experience for participants and an accomplished support team for those in need. The programme encourages personal reflection and development and also provides a 4-week mentored period in which to shadow experienced colleagues before embarking on a support role
Behind Closed Doors has been providing safe and confidential support to people who have experienced domestic abuse for over 25 years. We are there at the point of crisis to offer practical help and go on to offer prevention and recovery support.
