Briefings & Bespoke Training


Equation has a strong background in delivering full and half-day training sessions to front-line workers and is committed to sharing best practice about the responses that work against domestic violence and abuse. Whatever your area of work, Equation experts can support you to develop the skills in your organisation through impactful training. 

Equation offers both short and impactful briefings on domestic abuse and related topics, and bespoke training programs tailored specifically to the needs of your agency or area of development. 

In response to Coronavirus we have developed remote learning platforms to allow delegates to access our training safely. These new platforms facilitate both of our interactive and briefing style delivery options to be available online.
