Understanding multiple needs in women

Leeds – Thursday 9 March 2017 at 10:00-16:00
Bradford – Monday 13 March 2017 at 10:00-16:00

As part of this year’s training programme, Together Women Project (a WY-FI Partner), is providing training to those who work with women with multiple and complex needs.

This one-day course is aimed at font-line staff who support women with multiple needs. Participants will explore multiple needs in relation to housing, addiction, re-offending and mental ill health and learn more about how these are experienced by women specifically. Participants will develop their understanding of a gender-specific approach and why this is important when working with women who may also have experience of domestic violence, sex work and living apart from children.

Participants will:

  • Develop understanding of the gender-specific approach and how to apply this in practice
  • Empathise with the root causes of offending by women with multiple needs
  • Identify barriers women with multiple needs face when accessing support services
  • Develop knowledge of specialist women’s support services in West Yorkshire
  • Explore the importance of a multi-agency approach to supporting women with multiple needs

Who should attend?

  • WY-FI Navigators
  • WY-FI Peer Mentors
  • Front-line staff and managers working with women who are affected by homelessness, addiction, re-offending and/or mental ill health
