Leeton Shire Council have partnered with Lifeline to provide a free one day domestic violence awareness training session to community members and organisations with concern on Friday March 16.
This is an interactive session where individuals and groups can talk about the issue of domestic violence in their community and what they can do to help make a difference.
Here's what you can take away from the workshop:
• Identify the different signs and forms of abuse that constitute domestic and family violence
• Familiarise themselves with the Cycle of violence and Duluth wheels – power and control, equality and empowerment
• Reflect on and share what they can do if they know someone who is experiencing domestic and family violence
• Have an opportunity to network with other individuals
• Receive tools and references for domestic and family violence support and referral
The training is open to anyone and everyone and will be held on Friday March 16, from 9am-4pm in the Leeton Council Chambers located in Chelmsford Place.
Registrations are essential and can be done at online via www.dvalert.org.au, select ‘What’s On In My State?’ > NSW > Awareness Session, Leeton > Register
