Domestic Abuse in Lincolnshire
Introduction

Identifying domestic abuse is part of the schools safeguarding responsibilities. This training can be used as evidence towards helping you achieve SMSC.

Outcomes

Lincolnshire County Council’s Domestic Abuse Team can support schools in developing domestic abuse policies and procedures. We can support teachers to access appropriate training and resources that will assist them to identify domestic abuse, assess risk and ensure positive action takes place. This will give schools the confidence to raise the issue with pupils, and give them the tools and resources to deliver healthy relationship lessons.
