The DA Champion Role

In order to provide the best support for victims of domestic abuse using a joined-up approach, whilst looking after your own wellbeing, it is a requirement that as a DA Champion, you ensure the following:

 

  • Be aware of the impact of the role and responsibilities on your current job.
  • Act as an access point for DA support into and out of your organisation – but not to take on all domestic abuse cases.
  • Keep up to date and access information on referral pathways and services for your local area.
  • Ensure your colleagues are aware of the Champions scheme and how to contact you for guidance.
  • Cascade the training in relation to domestic abuse awareness in your organisation.
  • Ensure, where possible, that information such as posters, or website content, is displayed for potential victims to access.
  • Attend network meetings and refresher training, where possible. 

The DA Champion Hub &  Champion Training

Reducing the Risk Domestic Abuse Champion training runs through funding from Integrated Care Boards, Local Authorities, Community Safety or new Domestic Abuse Boards. This page contains information about the role of a Champion and training opportunities, along with the link to register to become a DA Champion.

We have a specific website for our DA Champions, the Champion Hub, where people can register for our training and events, network, utilise discussion forums, collaborate and connect with other practitioners, access resources and information related to DA and view the latest news in the sector. Reducing the Risk manages the Hub and are available to help and support Champions both trained and waiting for training.

If you want to become a Champion and attend the DA Champion training, or you are an existing DA Champion and are looking to access the Hub, click the button below!
