Guddy delivers the Domestic Abuse: Good Practice for Housing Providers training programme to housing organisations throughout the UK.
Her afternoon discussion, The role of housing providers in supporting individuals experiencing domestic abuse, will cover:
- Providing appropriate training to staff
- Developing an effective case management system
- Building effective links with Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARAC)
- Understanding the housing options and benefits available
‘I am really excited at the opportunity to raise awareness of how key housing are in responding effectively to domestic abuse and as part of a coordinated community response," says Guddy.
"I have been fortunate enough to train 15 providers who have all shown great enthusiasm in improving their response to domestic abuse. The training includes the use of a national risk assessment tool in order to make MARAC referrals for those that are most at risk of significant harm or death."
