This workshop will be of particular interest to Union Reps, Equality Reps and anyone (of any gender) who supports the rights of others at work.


How do we define Violence Against Women?
What are the causes?
How can we as Union Reps support women in the workplace?
What skills and knowledge do we need to effectively represent members affected by do-mestic abuse?
What resources are there to help?


In this interactive workshop we will look briefly at the spectrum of violence against women, the root causes and extent of the problem, and the links between different kinds of violence. The majority of the workshop will focus specifically on sharing good practice in responding to domestic abuse.

Workshops will take place from 9.30am to 4pm with lunch and refreshments included.

There is no cost to delegates to attend this course, however a charge of £30 may be applied in the event of delegates non-attendance without reasonable cause. Closing dates for registration:
Friday 22 February (Glasgow) and Friday 8 March (Inverness). Delegates are requested
to bring a copy of their union’s or employer’s domestic violence policy.
This course is brought to you by the STUC Women’s Committee in partnership
with Scottish Union Learning, and is supported by the Learning Fund.


After registering you will be emailed a survey to complete. This information will be shared with the trainer, Jan Macleod from Women’s Support Project, to help us tailor the course programme. We will not use this information for any other purpose.
