Join us for a morning of free online training based on the findings from the We Matter Too Project!
We Matter Too! is a project that addresses the needs of disabled young people facing domestic abuse.
The project was funded by the Lloyds Bank Foundation as part of a series of projects looking at domestic violence.
It explored gaps in domestic abuse service provisions and awareness of practitioners working with disabled young people, as identified by SafeLives and Women’s Aid. ACT, in partnership with Anita Franklin at Coventry University, carried out work that specifically addresses the needs of young disabled people.
You can learn more about the project here.
We Matter Too – One Day Online Training Based on the Project
This training will explore key findings and learning from the We Matter Too project. We will discuss how we can we better reach out and provide services for disabled young people experiencing domestic abuse.
We hope training will allow practitioners and managers to reflect on the services they provide.
Date: Wednesday July 15 2020
Who can attend? The training is aimed at all agencies working with young people.
There are 30 free places at this event.
