Free Domestic Abuse Champion Training has been arranged for early September, but take up has been low and we may need to cancel this training unless there are more attendees. That would be a real shame as North Norfolk is currently under-represented with Domestic Abuse Champions. We need Domestic Abuse Champions from any organisations working with people who may be affected by Domestic Abuse, of any age, ethnicity, sexuality or gender. Click here for information including details of how to book your space.
