What is the Dragonfly Project?

PARAGON has developed the Dragonfly Project with people in our communities so that those who are not well served by mainstream services can be supported to access help if they are affected by Domestic Abuse. We are seeking to reach people in isolated communities across:

  • Dorset
  • Hampshire
  • Isle of Wight
  • Somerset
  • Sussex

The main aim of this work is to educate and engage people living and working within these communities to become Champions. Champions will become a point of contact for those experiencing abuse, supporting them to access services.  The Dragonfly Project has raised and continues to raise awareness within these communities, enabling individuals to speak out about abuse.

Dragonfly Trainers provide Domestic Abuse awareness training to prepare Champions to carry out their role. The Dragonfly Project seeks to reduce stigma and increase people's confidence, helping them to talk openly about what is happening.

After Completion of the Awareness Training

Champions will have:

  • Promotional material to use for people to identify you as someone safe to talk with
  • An offer of support and guidance from Dragonfly workers through regular Drop In’s
  • Up-to-date information regarding the Project through Quarterly Newsletters
  • A chance to feedback to PARAGON on how you have supported people
  • Access to our online community on Facebook for further information on Domestic Abuse

*Please note - the workshop shows the reality of domestic abuse, including case studies and videos of real life cases.

Attending the Training

All workshops are being conducted virtually via Microsoft Teams. You will receive a link and/or calendar invitation roughly 24 hours before the date of your scheduled session.
