Clare Walker Consultancy – Domestic Abuse Training

clarewalkerprofilepic

 

Clare Walker Consultancy

 

Clare Walker is an expert in the field of domestic abuse & has been training professionals UK wide since 2006.

 

Clare set up the first Freedom Programme victims support group in Leicester in 2004.

 
Domestic abuse crosses all classes, ages, ethnicities, religions, cultures, races or lifestyles. The Freedom Programme demystifies domestic abuse in all its entirety.

 

This is most common in heterosexual intimate relationships, male perpetrator and female victim, but by no means solely.

 

The Freedom Programme model is based on human behaviours, therefore we can all identify with a lot of the tactics.

 

The difference in an abusive relationship is that the abuser has an agenda, which is to gain power & control of another.

 

The first step toward recovery is being able to identify that we’re in an abusive relationship –  the Freedom Programme educates us so we can see those relationships for what there are.

Suicide Awareness Partnership Training (SAPT)

Suicide Aware

Suicide Awareness Partnership Training (SAPT)

 

Suicide is a problem for society as a whole. It is an individual tragedy, and it also has significant affects on those left behind: family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, communities.

The Suicide Awareness Partnership Training (SAPT) project aims to increase awareness, and to help remove the stigma which can be an obstacle to people in need of help.

 

Based at the RCC, SAPT provides half-day training across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland which is open to all; members of the public, as well as those whose work is more likely to bring them into contact with people at greater risk of suicide.

The training addresses attitudes, discusses risk factors, and provides guidance on how to help someone in distress and possibly at risk of suicide.

 

The training is facilitated either by mental health clinicians or workers from relevant voluntary sector agencies.

If you wish to attend or host a suicide awareness training session, or want to find out more about SAPT, please contact the project manager Mike Wilbur

Stamp it Out

alt

Stamp It Out 

 

In today’s Britain no one should ever feel under threat of verbal abuse or physical violence just because of their disability, transgender (gender identity), race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

 

The risk of being attacked or abused on the street, at work or in their own home just because of who they are remains an everyday reality for many people.

 

If hate incidents go unreported this fear will increase and affects people’s ability to live open and happy lives.

 

Stamp It Out! is a community led partnership bringing together different groups and organisations all committed to challenging, tackling and stamping out hate within Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

How Are You Today?

How Are You Today?

 

The Leicester based Citizens Eye’s community news agency has a mental health news agency called How Are You Today?

 

The meetings take place the first Sunday of every month at the Phoenix Square Film 7 Digital Media Centre in Leicester.

 

The informal meetings begin at 2.00 pm and last for about an hour in the relaxing cafe surroundings.

 

For those who are interested in attending, the purpose of the group is really to discuss mental health and its plethora of issues, provide what personal support we can and try to address some of the discrimination and stigma that accompanies this whole area.

 

The meeting is open to anyone with an interest in mental health. There is no compulsion or pressure to talk and people can be as open or ‘closed’ as they wish. It is very informal.

 

You can find out more on our facebook page ‘How Are You Today?’ or on the Citizens Eye site
