Reducing the Risk offers a wide range of training on domestic abuse and interpersonal violence for professionals working across all sectors. We coordinate Domestic Abuse Champion Networks, provide consultancy, design bespoke workshops and deliver programmes for any group size and level of learning. We currently offer a variety of online training modules for a wide range of professionals.
About our training
At Reducing the Risk we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver engaging and tailored training, designed for a variety of learning and development needs. This ranges from providing basic awareness training to more in depth programmes on DASH Risk Assessments, safety planning and coercive control.
We also provide training for young people, to highlight abusive behaviours in young person relationships and also to provide a foundation of knowledge to support them in their careers.
Our charity specialises in the setting up and running of Domestic Abuse Champions’ Networks. Early intervention is key to supporting victims and families affected by domestic abuse. A network supports frontline practitioners to gain knowledge and skills in order to support colleagues internally and in other agencies.
We deliver regular training in authorities including Oxfordshire, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, West Berkshire and Torbay through our Domestic Abuse Champions Network. We provide training within other local authorities and organisations, such as educational institutions, health-based services, solicitor firms and police forces – and we work with charities and local projects to support staff and volunteers working with vulnerable people in their community.

Children and young people training
We are delighted to be working with Mulberry Bush to jointly provide training to staff in schools working with young children who have experienced the double impact of domestic abuse and COVID-19. If you’re interested in training for children or young people, or those working with them, we’d love to hear from you.
