Fantastic programme, tailored to meet the needs of the people who matter most, the survivors! Focus on being survivors who can take control of their recovery, health and wellbeing and so much positivity especially in the grounding, positive affirmations and self-care aspects. Thank you so much.
The content is pitched perfectly. There is an uplifting, empowering, and enabling tone throughout, while also not hiding away from the issue at hand. It is so important that the trauma week is included as this is what is missing in other programmes within our portfolio. I can imagine that this is so helpful in conveying to the service users that they are not ‘crazy’, that what they are experiencing are normal responses and that they are not to blame in any way for what has happened.
Excellent. Covered all topics relevant to support service users and had lots of up-to- date information. The videos were all very useful and supported different learning styles. I think the grounding exercises etc at the end of each session are particularly useful to help contain any emotions that may have arisen from the content and as a tool to support service users in everyday situations. I was very impressed with the explanation about the window of tolerance and feel this will be very useful to explain why service users are feeling and behaving in certain ways after suffering ongoing trauma.
I think the programme will genuinely make a difference in the lives of victims and survivors, which is all we want in the domestic abuse sector. The content was very clearly written form a trauma-informed perspective, which is great for facilitators and for those attending the programme.
Fantastic, very current and up to date – Trainers not only brought professional and personal information, but the passion and space to talk through each subject/area and have room for reflection on practice, made this course so enjoyable – I cannot wait to facilitate.
Fantastic content well-presented and laid out. The different parts sectioned up making each week easy to follow. The trauma element is fantastic as is the grounding and self-care elements. Not just helping clients to see the issues and the causes but helping them to form good habits and giving them the tools to move on.
Great variety of visual aids suitable for different kinds of learners. Use of up-to-date statistics/law etc makes the programme content feel current and suitable for such a programme in 2022.

The content is great. Up front, straight to the point, informative and very
supportive and empowering with the grounding resources, self-care elements
Excellent, provides a fresh approach which is holistic, and more victim focused.
The programme is so current it’s almost in the future! It is absolutely fantastic and love that it is intersectional too.
Very welcome. VOICE is a fresh and modern programme for victims. Love the self-care and affirmations focus each week.
I really enjoyed the tone of the training and how it felt like a safe space for all
in attendance. I’m so looking forward to facilitating this and am sure this will
be the new ‘must have’ programme in the domestic abuse support work sector.
The content of the programme is very effective, up to date and goes into a depth that has never been delved into before. It includes so many things that are in dire need, and in fact wanted by our service users.
It was enlightening, illuminating, and thought provoking. It is one of the missing
pieces of our services jigsaw puzzle! Thank you for developing and writing it.
