Online and face to face


Each year, we train thousands of professionals to confidently understand the impacts of domestic abuse, sexual violence and how best to support victims and survivors. Many of our courses are CPD accredited.

Dedicated training area for volunteers

Volunteer learning

We provide extensive training and support for people who volunteer with IDAS. Volunteer roles are varied and can be a great way to make a difference to victims and survivors. This area is restricted to current volunteers. To become a volunteer apply here.

Informing policy through research


As a leading specialist charity IDAS is regularly asked to input into research which helps inform local and national policy. We have also developed our own research on key areas of work including on the family courts.
