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
The BCD-orb (online resource bank) is a dedicated website where you can search, view and download resources designed to assist you in educating children and young people in a school setting about healthy relationships. The site also has a library of resources designed to support practitioners who are working with adults, young people and children who are, or have experienced/witnessed domestic violence and abuse.
