Rise For Change

Rise for Change is a remote first domestic abuse training programme. Our training is CPD accredited, trauma informed and survivor centred. Our training is for anyone- from a Manager who is understanding domestic abuse for the first time, to a knowledgeable practitioner who wants to refine and improve their practice.

We empower participants beyond the scope of ‘general awareness’ training by encouraging self-reflection and critical thinking, as well as providing learning that focuses on survivor experience, intersectionality and the multidimensional impact of trauma.

Ris for Change offers 4 training packages specially built to upskill attendees with the knowledge, practical skills and self-care needed to support survivors appropriately and safely, as well as Bespoke Programme delivery to meet your organisations individual needs. We also regularly run open sessions so individuals can sign up as part of their own CPD.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend the training?

Anyone can attend but it is specifically created with the below audiences in mind:

Non-Specialist Frontline Professionals which includes professional roles that are extremely likely to have contact with survivors but do not fall into the category of ‘DA specialists’

  • HR Managers and Senior Leaders who are responsible for ensuring the wider team/company practices and policies
  • Those with existing DA training or knowledge who wish to update and refresh their understanding.

Are your training courses CPD accredited?

Yes. Upon completion and full attendance of a training course attendees will be eligible for a CPD certificate.

Is the training face to face or online?

Rise for Change is a remote first training provider, with packages specifically built for this environment. With the rise in hybrid working and staff juggling busy schedules, we have found that remote learning ensures vital training and staff CPD can be prioritised.

We understand that remote learning is not the best fit for everyone, and all our sessions can be tailored to in-person. Please drop us a message to discuss this further.

Can individuals make bookings?

We like to ensure our sessions are accessible to organisations of all sizes by running “open sessions” several times a year where individual members of the public can book on.

How much do they cost?

All costs have been calculated based on fair and reasonable assessment of product delivery, staff expertise and time. Further details can be found in our training brochure here
