Training & Development

Women’s Aid has a dedicated Training and Development dept which provides support to local and national organisations throughout Ireland, promoting best practice responses to woman and children experiencing domestic violence.  All Women’s Aid training is informed and guided by over 40 years of experience of direct work supporting women and by international models of best practice.  We are grateful to receive funding from POBAL under the Scheme to Support National Organisations to enable us to continue this important work.
