Training Details

Champions will receive four day intensive skill based multi-agency training. They will be expected to use this in direct practice and from this direct experience and deeper understanding of the Model, Champions will be equipped to become advocates within their teams and local area.

Mininum requirements for attending the training:

  • Your manager must agree for you to attend training in the Safe & Together™ Model.
  • You must read the Safe & Together Briefing Issue 1 and perform the pretest and registration.
  • You must have a basic awareness of domestic abuse.

Next steps...It is essential that you:

  • Have the support of your line manager to enable you to take part in this training.
  • Are available to take part in the full four days of training.
  • Are committed to post-training Champion forums and promoting the Model

In addition, Champions will be involved in:

  • Helping to identify domestic abuse in discussion with colleagues when a case is presented with other issues such as substance misuse or mental health.
  • Coaching colleagues on developing clear expectations, safety plans, interviewing perpetrators, partnering with survivors and articulating the impact of domestic abuse on children and young people.
  • Contribute to in-service training on domestic abuse, ensure consistency with the Model and support new workers' introduction to the Safe & Together approach.
  • Present the Model at staff meetings, during learning and development activities and provide information on the Safe & Together approach.
  • Attend regular Safe & Together Champion forums (quarterly) to support their practice and to continue develop their skills and knowledge.


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a link to a PRETEST. The multiple-choice questionnaire will only take up to 10 minutes. We ask that you complete it to the best of your ability BEFORE arriving to your first training day. The questions may seem specific, but please read each question carefully and select the answers that seem best or in a way that best matches your own practice. This pretest is meant to begin the learning process and your score will NOT affect your participation or certificate in any way.

About Safe & Together™ Model CORE Training

Safe & Together Institute’s CORE Training is designed to provide a skills-oriented foundation for domestic violence-informed practice. Each day of training provides experiential classroom training focused on the following foundational practice areas:

  • Day 1 Assessment
  • Day 2 Interviewing
  • Day 3 Documentation
  • Day 4 Case Planning

CORE Training explores the importance of:

  • Identifying the impact of domestic violence on children and family functioning
  • Fact-based assessment of the perpetrators' behavior patterns
  • Partnering with adult survivors of domestic violence
  • Intervening with perpetrators
  • How domestic violence intersects with other issues like substance abuse and mental health

Participants of the CORE Training will:

  • Learn to use practice tools, such as Mapping Perpetrators’ Patterns and Multiple Pathways to Harm that can be implemented right away to improve assessment of risk, impact on children, survivor protective efforts and essential case decisions.
  • Practice interviewing perpetrators, survivors and children through modeling, role play and videos.
  • Improve their domestic violence-informed documentation through individual and group exercises.
  • Discuss their own current or past cases and explore how the Safe & Together Model could be implemented.

Also included in CORE Training:

  • Plans will be developed by participants to support the implementation of the Model to improve their day-to-day practice and to influence their communities and family service systems to become more domestic violence-informed.
  • Participants will complete a pre- and posttest to reflect learning, as well as a training evaluation.
  • Participants who attend all four days and take the posttest will receive a certificate of completion, which indicates they participated in 22 training hours.
