Event description
Community Safe Place Advocates is an online workshop allowing attendees to create a plan of action to work towards a Safe Community award

About this event

The Community Safe Place Advocates workshop is an opportunity for anyone who is interested in making a positive change to addressing domestic abuse within their community by promoting the Safe Place Initiative and working towards a Safe Community award for their area.

Attendees will meet other people from their area and work together to create a plan of action to work towards achieving a Safe Community award for their neighbourhood.

Attendees must have previously attended a Safe Place Webinar prior to taking part in the workshop. There is no minimum commitment or skill level required, everyone can be an advocate and make a difference. The workshop is led by the Onus Safe Place Coordinator, Josephine Flynn, who will provide all necessary training and ongoing support.

Organiser Onus (NI) Ltd

Organiser of Safe Place Advocates Workshop - Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council

Onus was established as a social enterprise by Women's Aid Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey (ABCLN) in 2007 and offers specialist training and consultancy services on domestic violence or abuse.

In 2010 we launched our Workplace Charter on Domestic Violence, a bespoke accreditation scheme, to enable organisations, businesses, churches and communities, to be recognised for their support to anyone affected by domestic violence or abuse. Our range of supported pathways, empower communities to recognise and respond to anyone affected by domestic or sexual violence or abuse.


We believe that in order to create a society that has zero tolerance towards domestic violence or abuse, prevention and early intervention work is crucial. We don't provide direct support services to anyone living with domestic abuse, we aim to raise awareness and build capacity, to ensure anyone affected by domestic abuse is directed to support services, hence the name of our range of initiatives 'Pathways for Participation'.
