Domestic abuse training sessions
Training sessions to help spot signs of domestic abuse and support those affected are available through the Community J9 Domestic Abuse Initiative.
J9 training is open to anyone in the community and helps them to recognise domestic abuse and respond to survivors.
The free, hour-long awareness raising sessions will equip attendees with the tools to recognise abuse, respond appropriately and help people access the support they need.
Following the training attendees receive access to a J9 information pack that they can make available to anyone to who might need it via the SETDAB Website.
The pack has a wealth of information on local and national support services, and what help people are entitled to.
Abusers isolate their victims making it difficult, if not impossible, to seek help. By empowering members of the community to know how to react we can ensure that more people have access to the help they need.
The J9 initiative is named in memory of Janine Mundy, who was killed by her estranged husband whilst he was on police bail. It was started by her family and the local police in Cambourne, Cornwall, where she lived and aims to raise awareness of domestic abuse and assist victims to access help and support. We remain in contact with her family who give their full support.
