Violence Against Women

We are committed to raising awareness of Violence Against Women.  The term Violence Against Women (or gender based violence as it is often known) encompasses many issues including domestic abuse, rape and sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, and prostitution.  It is estimated that between 1 in 2 and 1 in 5 women in Highland will experience at least one form of it in their lifetime.  The impact this can have on a woman’s life is wide ranging and can include physical disability, sexual ill health and mental health problems.

 
The Highland Violence Against Women training is offered at two different levels:
 
Level 1 – Awareness Raising
Level 2 – Skills/sector specific training 
We can combine our offer of training to meet the needs of teams and are happy to offer team training sessions out with this open calendar.
 

Training Provision

Please note: In order to access Level 2 training and the workshops that we are offering, participants MUST have previously attended a Level 1 Violence Against Women course or Women’s Aid domestic abuse training in the past 3 years.

Training dates for 2018 are available here
