Free LGBT Domestic Violence Training in 2014
The training will cover the dynamics and prevalence of same sex domestic violence including the same sex power and control wheel, associated risk factors, LGBT-specific tactics of power and control, safety planning and an exploration of homophobia and heterosexism.
Over the winter period, Birmingham Community Safety Partnership, with its partner agencies, are launching a series of campaigns to raise awareness about domestic violence and abuse:
- “Stand Up Shout Out – Domestic Abuse No Excuse” with one clear message: Birmingham will not tolerate domestic violence.
- the First Night campaign – an opportunity for everyone to donate items at identified collection points across the City, which refuges can then give to women and children on their first night they leave their homes to seek a place of safety; and
- Operation Sentinel – a West Midlands Police lead campaign encouraging victims to seek their help
Over the next 24-days, in true ‘advent calendar’ style, the Partnership will be bringing you messages each day from key people and organisations across the City to increase awareness and provide information on all aspects of domestic violence and abuse. Please support this campaign by sharing this page with your friends and family (if tweeting, please include the hashtag #SUSOBrum) and remember to check back check each day for the latest feature.
If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence call Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid helpline on 0808 800 0028 or see our Survivor Guide for other agencies that can help.
