Training in Tackling Violence Against Women

Tuesday August 30 2022

A new training programme has been developed to help people within the Church of Scotland tackle violence against women and girls.

The training has been put together over 18 months by the Church’s violence against women task group, Integrity, with the support of a specialist in the field. The session aims to equip people at all levels of the Church to:

  • Improve understanding on violence against women
  • Build confidence when responding to the issue directly
  • Reflect on the role of the Church in preventing, resisting and responding to violence against women

Most participants in the training so far have reported improved knowledge of the subject and confidence in responding to it. One said: “I took a lot away from it which I will certainly act on. Whilst I recognised most of what was presented/discussed to some extent, the course really helped join the dots and fill some gaps".

The next session will be held online, on September 15 at 6.45pm. Book (for free) here.

September's Life and Work is out now.
