Understanding Family and Domestic Violence

The Imagined Futures Community of Practice hosted a second workshop, Understanding Family and Domestic Violence, for frontline workers in the South West Metro region. This interactive training session, led by Communicare, focused on understanding the signs of abuse and practical strategies to safely support someone experiencing family and domestic violence.

The City of Fremantle provided the venue, with 28 participants attending, representing ten different organisations including local government and community agencies.
Some great feedback from participants:

“Amazing presentation, really informative!”

“Presenters were very knowledgeable. Thank you”

“The content of the presentation was engaging especially learning from other service providers and lived experience.”

This event was delivered through the Community of Practice, which is a group of local human services workers who come together to collaborate and address gaps in services in the South West Metro region. The Community of Practice events are generally low budget, with each of the members contributing in kind. Thanks to the City of Fremantle and Communicare for their contributions to this event and the Community of Practice for their commitment to providing training and networking opportunities for frontline workers.
