At Equation, we are dedicated to eradicating all forms of domestic abuse and gender-based violence. In order to do this, a large part of our work involves engaging with the professional network of people working with people experiencing abuse, and those researching preventative measures.
Our training services for professionals offer a range of techniques and insights for community workers, volunteers, and frontline professionals. We run a number of courses designed to aid the understanding of and response to domestic violence, for those working with both survivors and perpetrators.
Our bespoke, specialist, and in-house training programs are additional tailored courses we can create with your organisation in mind to suit your needs. In the past we have worked with Nottinghamshire Police, the Prison Service, City and County Safeguarding teams, Pupil Referral Units, and the East Midlands Ambulance Service. The format of the training ranges from delivering brief intensive workshops to large-scale seminars.
Best Practice Library
If you have contact with people experiencing domestic or sexual abuse as part of your job, you can find practical guidance in our best practice library. With a wide range of materials including local services that can be of help, you can find access to information about domestic abuse and the best ways to respond to people experiencing it.
There are also a number of documents containing relevant research to add to your knowledge, discussing issues such as the public perceptions of domestic abuse and other key documents relating to our procedures, such as the strategies and policies that are considered best practice when arranging an intervention or support.
We also support specialists with our wealth of resources, ranging from information on maintaining safety for those who may be at risk, to helping others move forwards after suffering domestic abuse. We also promote healthy relationships with guides for children and young people on how best to navigate sex and relationships.
