Training

The Safer Somerset Partnership aims for the effective prevention and response to domestic abuse to be a priority for all agencies.  All organisations can have a basic awareness of domestic abuse, which can help provide a shared community understanding of the complexity surrounding the problem.

Somerset County Council on behalf of the Safer Somerset Partnership organises a range of training courses - from basic awareness to more specialist courses.

Take a look at our Somerset Domestic Abuse Training Strategy here.
