We can help you to break cycles of abuse by training you and your team to understand a wide ranges of issues which impact women and children, using a unique multi-disciplinary approach with experts based in Law, Health, Human Rights, Social Care, Economics, Teaching, Gender Based Violence and Domestic Abuse Organisations from across the globe.

When women and children report abuse, this is often after years of suffering in silence. When they are able to report it, the abuse is often minimised and victim-survivors are frequently disbelieved and victim-blamed for the abuse. The perpetrators of abuse are rarely held accountable for their actions. At SHERA we want to change this, by training the next generation of professionals to See Hear Empower Respond and Act appropriately. It’s estimated that 736 million women have experienced physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. Women and girls face such levels of violence and abuse, that the United Nations has pledged to bring gender equality to the world by 2030. We too want to see a world where all people are treated fairly and equally, with peaceful, just and strong institutions, increased health and well-being for all and equality for all. All of our training aligns with these United Nations Sustainability Goals, whilst being tailored to the specific needs of individuals, contexts and organisations by incorporating a unique, Multi-Disciplinary and Place-Based-Approach.
