Specialist training to provide safe and effective workplace support for staff who experience domestic violence.

‘First responders’ are the staff within an organisation designated as the people to contact if staff are experiencing domestic violence and want support in the workplace from their employer. Read more about creating a safe and effective workplace response to domestic violence at

Training is critical to help ‘first responders’ be prepared to respond safely and effectively to domestic violence in the workplace, and also to help them understand their professional boundaries.

Prerequisite: If your organisation is not yet a DVFREE Tick partner organisation or consulting with Shine to develop your domestic violence policy and procedures, and you’d like to register some of your staff for the First Responder Training, you are required to also send at least one person to the: Creating Effective Domestic Violence Policy & Procedures workshop. This workshop runs just before the first responder training session.
