In April we spent 2.5 days with a group of practitioners at the Simon Community in Glasgow. The training was Safe to Say and the 13 participants had a valuable learning experience. They told us that “this training has improved my confidence” and that “this has affirmed my skills and has given me space to reflect on my practice and on myself. ” One participant said that she would always have avoided bringing up sexual abuse but would now have no difficulties in addressing the problems survivors have. The training had raised her awareness and she feels that she can now ask questions around sexual abuse. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive.
This was exciting for us as this is one of the main objectives we aim for in our training.
We are pleased to be working with the Simon Community who have clearly made the link between trauma and homelessness and have now put people forward for the Safe to Say Training for Trainers.
