All CMS staff are trained in how to support women who disclose domestic abuse and have access to The Domestic Abuse Plan which guides caseworkers through the appropriate action to take to help safeguard vulnerable women..

Additionally, earlier this year we introduced a bespoke Domestic Abuse Awareness training course that was developed with Women’s Aid and has been delivered for our staff across the country.
