groupsDomestic violence affects 1 in 5 women in Ireland. However, it is not always easy to recognise when a woman is a victim. Whilst some women are able to disclose abuse, there are many others whose experiences of domestic violence remain invisible to people working within agencies and organisations that could offer support and referral. MWSS delivers training to these services and covers topics such as:

  • Understanding the dynamics of D.V.
  • Impact on women
  • Impact on children
  • Legal Options
  • Good Practice Guidelines
  • Safety Planning

MWSS also deliver ‘Healthy Relationships’ Programme to secondary schools in the County.
