Support Through Court: Domestic Abuse
    • Welcome

      This suite of training modules has been produced by Support Through Court and the Open Justice Centre (Open University Law School).

      It contains a series of modules to support volunteers in their work with members of the public who are involved in court proceedings.

      There are three key domestic abuse training modules which provide advice and support on working with clients affected by domestic abuse, both survivors and alleged perpetrators. There is a digital badge awarded for studying these key modules and you will also receive a Statement of Participation.

      Seven shorter training modules contain practical advice and assistance on various aspects of client support. These include working with clients involved with special measures, Cafcass, improving your client interview skills, writing court statements, signposting to other organisations, and working with vulnerable clients. There is an exclusive digital badge awarded for studying these shorter training modules.
