Help prevent animals being affected by domestic abuse

Are you a veterinary care professional? Do you want to make a positive difference in your community?

Then knowing how to recognise the signs of domestic abuse, and understanding how it impacts on animals is vital.

Domestic abuse is a silent epidemic. It affects thousands of women and men, and children and pets every day, in every location. Whether you're in a city or rural area.

There will be people you meet as customers in your veterinary clinic. Or your colleagues who will all be impacted by domestic abuse.

In this course learn more about what you can do in your veterinary role.

You'll also find a bonus module on how to help employees in the workplace. This is ideal if you manage any staff in your veterinary practice, or if you're a HR manager.

I don't intend to help you to become a domestic abuse expert. But to give you enough information to help you to make a difference.

Please take this chance to be part of the co-ordinated community response to tackling domestic abuse!

Why You'll Benefit From This Digital Learning

  • This course has been written by me! I've worked in a large local authority as a commissioner of domestic abuse services for over 12 years. I've devised many domestic abuse training programmes for professionals across several sectors. And I also co-ordinate reviews into domestic abuse related deaths, and so am very familiar with how domestic abuse affects peoples (and their animals) lives.
  • You will discover why this issue is relevant to you
  • You can get ideas on what you can do to practically help tackle this issue and improve the lives of animals and people.
