Domestic abuse affects a great deal of the population. The emergency services receive a call regarding domestic abuse every 60 seconds. Research has found that a victim will be assaulted or experience abuse around 35 times before they first make contact with the police. More needs to be done so that victims access support earlier and prevent escalation. Early identification is key. We offer training to support health professionals to effectively identify Domestic abuse and refer them on to appropriate services. We offer this free training throughout Derbyshire.
