Forty five percent of referrals to our national Honour Based Abuse Helpline are from professionals. Police officers, social workers, teachers, housing professionals and health workers are often the first to respond to a victim. Therefore it is vital they can recognise this form of abuse, and can offer a safe and appropriate response.
In this line of work, we often come across the phrase ‘The One Chance Rule’. Responding in the right way can literally save lives.
Our goal is to reset the way frontline practitioners perceive, understand and respond to Honour Based Abuse. Our training builds confidence, ensuring that victims and survivors receive the best response on the ground.
Excellent session, this definitely needs to be better understood nationally. I know there is a lot of fear around being racist when challenging and/or raising concerns but this is a situation that needs to be overcome.Social worker
