Why we developed the training standards

Survivors tell us they need individuals and services to listen, believe and respond in a non-judgmental way that allows them to exercise choice and be active in their own safety planning, in achieving protection from abuse and during recovery and rebuilding for themselves and their families.

Research shows on average survivors make five approaches to services before they receive effective help. We want to get it right first time.
