“In my role as a frontline worker, I am often asked for advice such as keeping safe, local support offers, and specialist services. I have the support of other Champions and when I have a question that I am not sure about I am able to call on the network to find the answer. This ensures that women are given the right information and support, they are not left feeling alone. Being a Champion enables you to share your knowledge with other professionals and challenge victim-blaming. This valued knowledge has enabled me to be more equipped when working with those affected by Domestic Abuse.”
