Communities Inc are offering free Stand by Me (bystander intervention) training on Wednesday the 2nd August, 9.30am – 12.30pm at NBV Enterprise Centre.
It is aimed at individuals who would like to build their knowledge and confidence to stand by anyone experiencing hate or hostility. Training will focus on safe interventions that support the victim.
A bystander is a person present where another person needs help, but chooses not to act. Bystander Interventions can prevent escalation of incidents. It also sends a strong message to perpetrators that their behaviour is not acceptable.
