EDUCATION AWARENESS AND PREVENTION PROGRAMMES
Clare Haven Services believes that one of the most effective ways to help reduce and eliminate domestic abuse in our society is through preventative education and awareness raising and training. Clare Haven regularly gives awareness raising talks on domestic abuse to second-level schools and training centres.
We also provide training and give awareness talks to voluntary and community groups; statutory agencies and professionals working in front-line services. To book training or awareness raising talks please contact us on 065 6842646.
INTERAGENCY WORK AND REFERRALS
It is difficult for one agency on its own to address all aspects of domestic abuse. Many other agencies and organisations also have a role to play in preventing domestic abuse, protecting and supporting survivors of domestic abuse and holding perpetrators accountable. Clare Haven works closely with other statutory and voluntary groups to provide a holistic service to women and children.
