New course to tackle domestic abuse
A NEW course aimed at helping people tackle domestic violence is being launched in North Somerset.
The free, half day course is aimed at workers, volunteers, members of community groups and others who may come across someone living with domestic abuse.
Based on statistics from the British Crime Survey, more than 6,000 women experience domestic abuse each year in North Somerset, and some research suggests that as many as one in six men may also suffer domestic abuse at some point in their lives.
At the end of the half-day course participants will understand more about what domestic abuse is, why people stay and its impact on families.

Courses will also run on February 26 and March 26 at the Scotch Horn Leisure Centre, Nailsea.
