New free online resources are available for both professionals and the public to help spot the signs and reduce the risk of becoming a victim of domestic abuse and modern slavery.

  This new range of online learning modules will give professionals further confidence on next steps and the help and support they can provide to victims.

  The public have free access to a set of modules providing guidance on recognising the signs of domestic abuse and modern slavery and what they can do to help.  

Speaking on their launch, Somerset County Council’s Cabinet Member with responsibility for community safety, Cllr Clare Paul said, “Somerset, like other community safety partnerships around the country, sadly has had several domestic homicide reviews.   “The recurring theme that has emerged is that the public is unclear when it comes to understanding the signs of abuse and what to do if they are concerned.   “Likewise, we know that modern slavery is under reported and under-recognised. With the launch of these modules, we aim to address this and ensure both professionals and public alike understand the signs of abuse, how it impacts families, and what they can do. The Domestic Abuse Act signed into law in April 2021 further raises the need for more learning to be available on these topics.”
