Violence against Women and Girls, Crime Prevention & Personal Safety Training
Empowering Change, Ensuring Safety
The harrowing reality is that violence against women and girls is an insidious issue that affects both genders, but it disproportionately targets women. It strikes closest to home, with women facing elevated risks of physical assault, even murder, within their trusted circles. They are also at significantly higher risk of enduring sexual assault or exploitation throughout their lives, from early childhood to adolescence and beyond.
- Around the world, an alarming 35% of women have encountered physical and/or sexual violence at some point.
- Women are more likely to suffer violence from intimate partners.
“Violence against Women and Girls” encompasses gender-based violence that causes or has the potential to cause physical, sexual, or psychological harm or suffering. This includes not only actual acts of violence but also the ominous spectre of threats, coercion, or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether in public or private life.
Our Dedication to Change We’ve developed a half-day training course dedicated to raising awareness of the unique risks that women and girls face, both within the sanctity of their homes and when navigating the world alone. Our mission is to equip delegates with a comprehensive set of skills and safety strategies that empower them to effectively identify and engage with women and girls who might be at risk.
Our training course is delivered with the utmost sensitivity and engagement, prioritising opportunities for questions and discussions. The learning process is profoundly interactive and features a range of exercises designed to both educate and motivate participants.
- Community Safety: Delve into the specific risks and concerns related to violence against women and girls. These encompass issues like child sexual exploitation, gang affiliations, domestic violence, modern slavery, sexual harassment, and more.
- Identifying High-Risk Locations: Understand the dynamics of high-risk areas, both during the day and night, including town/city centres, suburbs, parks/open spaces, bus/train/tube stations, taxis, schools, colleges, and universities.
- Recognising Vulnerable Women and Girls: Learn to recognise signs and potential behaviours indicative of women and girls who may be at risk.
- Effective Engagement with At-Risk Individuals: Overcome barriers and address concerns when engaging with individuals who may be at risk. This includes understanding the sensitive nature of their situations and how to offer support without causing further harm.
