DVFREE Workplace: 'First Responder' Domestic Violence Training
Thursday 5 December 2019
The Terrace, 81 Cashel Street, Christchurch
Shine, hosted by Westpac
From $220 + gst (Early bird rates end two weeks prior to training commencing)
Specialist training to provide safe and effective workplace support for staff who experience domestic violence.
‘First responders’ are the staff within an organisation designated as the people to contact if staff are experiencing domestic violence and want support in the workplace from their employer. Read more about creating a safe and effective workplace response to domestic violence at www.dvfree.org.nz
Training is critical to help ‘first responders’ be prepared to respond safely and effectively to domestic violence in the workplace, and also to help them understand their professional boundaries.
Prerequisite: If your organisation is not yet a DVFREE Tick partner organisation or consulting with Shine to develop your domestic violence policy and procedures, and you’d like to register some of your staff for the First Responder Training, someone within your organisation must, at a minimum, download and read the free Guidelines for Policy & Procedures in order to help inform the development of your domestic violence policy and procedures. Shine recommends that you consult with Shine on your policy and procedures.
