Workshops for Communities

Stalking Training and Workshop

A half day session that covers all the elements of stalking including a comprehensive insight into what stalking is, the effect on the victim and their families and loved ones and how to safely support someone you may suspect of being a victim.

This workshop will be introduced with an in-depth presentation consisting of Hollie’s story; what is stalking; stalking legislation; types of behaviour’s; types of stalkers; reporting stalking; disclosure; do’s and don’ts and the six golden rules. We will look at recent research and the connection between stalking and homicide.  

Three interactive workshops will follow covering: Stalking Behaviours,  Impact on the Victim and  Safety Planning. 

Coercive Control Workshop

A 60-90-minute workshop that covers all the elements of Coercive Control.

Coercive Control includes both coercive behaviour and controlling behaviour. It is a form of domestic abuse designed by one individual to abuse and control another. Coercive behaviour is an act or a pattern of acts of assault, threats, humiliation and intimidation or other abuse that is used to harm, punish, or frighten a victim.

In this workshop, we look at changes to the Serious Crime Act making it an offence; the types of coercive control including definitions. We explore in detail abuser behaviour and the range of abuser tactics through several exercises.

We look how to identify when this is happening, the importance of early intervention and what action can be taken.

Active Bystander Communities

A day long programme designed for community members to learn more about domestic abuse, and how they can help combat it by learning skills to intervene as a positive bystander.

When bystanders intervene, for example by signalling their disapproval of a behaviour, the wrongdoer receives this message – and so do other people around them. The programme works with participants in a positive and empowering way to think about scenarios and helpful behaviours which could help make a difference and make the community safer for everyone. You should however, consider that domestic abuse is a sensitive topic and you might find some of the content distressing.

The programme will be delivered by experienced facilitators.

Hollie Guard Workshop

A 60 minute workshop on the use of Hollie Guard detailing how you to set up emergency contacts and the flexible options for work and leisure. The various alert profiles and how they differ. It will demonstrate the main functionality and how these work to help safeguard you including:

The Journey Feature that can help you travel safely. Whenever you use this feature, your emergency contacts are informed about where you’re going so they can check on you in case you’re in trouble.

The Meeting Alarm feature can help you in situations with a risk factor, for example when meeting an estranged partner, going on a blind date or working alone. This feature works in lock screen mode, ideal as a tool for lone workers and for discretion in a handbag or pocket.

The Man Down feature. This allows users performing dangerous tasks to activate an immediate alert as soon as the user becomes motionless.

Knife Crime Workshop

A 90-minute workshop that covers the main elements of knife crime.

Knife crime is on the increase and is blighting our communities, ending the lives of many young people. With the use of visual aids including videos where attendees choose the ending and experience the consequences of their choice. We will outline how crimes can be reported anonymously and the support that’s available.

In this workshop we will explore the reasons why people carry knives, the damage that using a knife can have along with the ripple effect it has. We will look at the laws for carrying a knife, the impact of joint enterprise on those involved even if they do not carry or use. We will explore alternatives for safeguarding including Hollie Guard.
