An ‘army’ of observers will help ensure there is no hiding place for abusers

The Ask, Validate, Document & Refer (AVDR) programme has been awarded £115,000 by ScotGov to develop & deliver domestic abuse training throughout Scotland, teaching professionals on how to look out for the signs of domestic abuse and to give guidance on how to get further support to victims.

The programme, set up by Medics Against Violence and the Violence Reduction Unit, trains professionals to spot the signs of domestic abuse and raise it with clients during a routine check-up or visit in a private setting.  So far, 2,000 have been trained, but it will potentially reach 100,000.
