North of Tyne Ask Me Scheme

Survivors of domestic abuse are likely to confide in people they know and trust.  This can include friends, family or people within their community. 

But a lack of understanding and confidence can make these people unsure of how to respond when someone finds the courage to speak out.  Survivors tell us they can feel judgedisolated or silenced by the people around them.  We are changing this through our Change That Lasts Ask Me scheme. 

Delivered in partnership with local communities, the scheme allows everyday people to become Community Ambassadors.  Through training sessions, they will be equipped with an understanding of domestic abuse and how to respond to survivors.  This knowledge will enable the community to play an active role in ending domestic abuse. 

 

The training sessions take place online, using Zoom.  The sessions are 2.5 hours long and you would need to be available to attend 3 sessions on the same day/time over a three-week period.  You can choose the dates and times that are most convenient for you.  

The North of Tyne Community Ambassador programme delivery partners are:  WWiN and Harbour 

The project is funded by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumbria - Violence Reduction Unit.
