Why we are asking you to partake in these:

This training will help you to ensure your members can feel safer on nights out and empower you to be able to prevent uncomfortable and/or dangerous situations you or your members see.

Taking part in this course is a positive way to contribute to efforts to build a community that embodies our values, tackling issues such as sexual violence, misconduct, and abuse. Participating also supports the development of leadership, communication and listening skills.

What the session will cover:

What our community values look like in practice and spotting the signs of unacceptable behaviours like bullying and domestic violence.

How we identify and interpret behaviour as unacceptable and why people may fail to.

Our role in building a community that embodies our values, shifting problematic beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours through safe and effective interventions as an active bystander.

The barriers to becoming an active bystander and how we can overcome them.

Effective intervention strategies for a wide range of scenarios, including sexual violence, harassment and hate.
