As a team of associates we bring a variety of frontline experience and

  expertise to the work we undertake as Sarah Wigley Associates.  We

  are all professional trainers with a frontline background in the field of

  family violence, working with victims and perpetrators across

  numerous disciplines including the criminal justice system. All

  associates work at both a local and national level with some of the

  key national agencies within the domestic abuse sector.

  Victims of domestic abuse might ask anyone for help depending on 

  their circumstances at any given time.  We believe it is vital that

  training is translated into improved practice to ensure that both adult

  and child victims receive help and support at the earliest

  opportunity.  Our training also focuses on engaging with perpetrators

  of domestic abuse for those that work across the family.

  We promote the use of evidence based learning and critical thinking

  as key components of practice in order to positively impact the

  experience of both adult and child victims of domestic abuse.  We

  challenge delegates to reflect on their own practice in a supportive

  environment and consider how they might take the learning into their

  professional role.

   We are busy updating our current courses and writing new materials during this time. We anticipate this activity (fingers crossed) will resume

   in the Autumn.  In the meantime please contact us through our contact page or at training@sarahwigleyassociates.co.uk   We are also                     currently turning our attention to front line work to support the domestic abuse sector. 

   Many domestic abuse services continue to operate and are finding creative ways to engage with victims who are experiencing heightened             levels of isolation. We consistently retweet messages from front line organisations of the services they offer. 

If you are in danger please dial 999. The Police will respond to you.

About our associates 



   Sarah Wigley has spent  her adult career working within the field of       family violence.  Whilst working front line within the domestic sector,     Sarah realised that there was a need for expertise in relation to         

   domestic abuse to extend beyond the specialist domestic abuse

   sector.  Whilst great strides have been made since those early days

   there is still some way to go!   

   Sarah now works with a team of associates, specialising in

   supporting front line professionals and agencies whose work

   involves engaging with and responding to victims of domestic abuse.

   It is a key aim that all professionals have an increased awareness

   and confidence to identify domestic abuse  and respond         

   appropriately both directly to the client and within the multi agency

   arena.

   Projects have ranged from designing and delivering bespoke training

   packages to consultancy focusing on how best to shape a local

   support service in such a way that survivors and their safety remain

   at the heart of the service.

   Training is bespoke and designed to fit a specific need....contact us
