If you live in west London and interact with a lot of people in your day job, you might be able to help a domestic abuse survivor. Charity Women's Aid is looking to train Londoners based in Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster to know how to spot the signs and effects of abuse and signpost women to support.
The 'Ask Me' scheme was launched in June to ensure women experiencing domestic abuse could be identified much earlier, based on feedback from survivors who said opportunities for help were missed in their local communities. The charity is now aiming to recruit 80 'Ask Me' ambassadors to come along to a training session in the New Year.
Anyone who's interested or would like to find out more should visit the Women's Aid website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
