How to get the most out of SafeLives training.

We - and our valued supporters - have been working hard to establish funding relationships that can help you take up the training you need.

Feel proud and confident in your role as a highly qualified professional

Learn how to provide truly powerful practical and emotional support to victims of domestic abuse and their children. 

It’s not easy to ask about sexual violence, but this course will show you how – and then what to do to make the victim safer.

Improve the response in your local area to young people who are experiencing domestic abuse

Improve the support you offer clients: trauma-informed working, strengths based work and building resilience.

Our research finds that on average, older people experience domestic abuse for twice as long before seeking help as those aged under 61, and nearly half have a disability.1 Yet, older victims are hugely underrepresented in domestic abuse services.
