BASW England Domestic Abuse Workshop Series: Supporting Black and Minoritised Survivors of Domestic Abuse

In partnership with Southall Black Sisters

Following the launch of BASW England’s recent domestic abuse guidance, which highlighted the intersectionality of victim-survivors from marginalised backgrounds, we are proud to present the third of three sessions in the following series:

  1. Supporting Deaf Survivors of Domestic Abuse [15/7/2021]
  2. Supporting LGBT+ Survivors of Domestic Abuse [7/9/2021]
  3. Supporting Black and Minoritised Survivors of Domestic Abuse [15/10/2021]

For this session, BASW England has partnered with Southall Black Sisters, a charity working to support black and minoritised communities, to provide bespoke CPD training on how best social workers can meet the needs of deaf victim-survivors in cases of domestic abuse. We will be joined by Pragna Patel, manager of Southall Black Sisters.

This will be an interactive, reflective space for practitioners to develop skills crucial to meeting the needs of a group who are not only more likely to experience domestic abuse. , but are also more likely to face barriers accessing appropriate support. The learning outcomes are as follows:

  • Develop understanding of how Black and minoritised women may experience unique forms of abuse
  • To discover typical barriers faced by Black and minoritised survivors when trying to access services
  • Discover practice-based tools which can be used to effectively support survivors
  • Provide a safe, reflective space for practitioners to apply learning to their practice/case studies
  • Opportunities for a Q&A session
