Research highlights that survivors of domestic abuse go to as many as five different agencies before they get the help, advice and support they need. Additionally, many frontline staff struggle to know how to respond to people experiencing domestic abuse and are therefore unlikely to spot the signs of DA or encourage colleagues in disclosing. The DA Network provides specialist training to individuals who can cascade knowledge and awareness as well as assist in helping survivors of domestic abuse receive the necessary support.
