Launch a Domestic Abuse Support Group
Is domestic abuse missing from your mental health initiative?
Employee mental health and wellbeing is vital to employee engagement and productivity. Addressing domestic abuse is a key part of this.
This means it’s happening to people in your office, under your watch.
Upskill your employees and improve your company’s capability by launching a domestic abuse support group.
Nicole worked with me to help develop from scratch training sessions which would bring a group of volunteers with varied levels of understanding of domestic abuse to come together as a support group.
Nicole engaged with the project with passion and enthusiasm. She was able to see our vision, she worked with us and brought us together to understand what each of us wanted, where we needed help individually and as a group and what skill gaps needed to be addressed.
I cannot thank Nicole enough for the time she has invested in this project, for her enthusiasm, her passion and sharing her knowledge with us through expert coaching techniques with a huge dash of humanity.
