6th April 12.00-13.00 bystander training

Hackney Council have launched a virtual training program of bystander training for all members of the community to help everyone spot and assist a victim of abuse.

About the Training course :

When we intervene in abusive gender-based behaviour, we signal to the perpetrator that their behaviour is unacceptable. If such messages are constantly reinforced within our community, we can shift the boundaries of what is considered acceptable and problem behaviour can be stopped.

This FREE 1 hour virtual training session will cover:

Learning to recognise when someone is in danger and how you can intervene safely. 

The 5 D’s – Distract, Delegate, Document, Delay, and Direct – that can be used to support someone who’s being harassed on the basis of gender.

Participants will:

  • Understand how to empower themselves to intervene safely when they spot harassment.
  • Develop strategies and skills to act safely and effectively to support someone who is being harassed.
  • Consider real-life scenarios to practise skills.
  • Receive a certificate and resources.

There are various dates through the year, with the next one being 6th April 2023.

It is FREE to attend and you can book online using the link here:
