Introducing the Transform Toolkit

in Other Share this

Cyfannol’s awareness-raising project aims to raise awareness of the support and services available to all those who have experienced violence against women, domestic abuse or sexual violence in Gwent, particularly people identified as facing additional barriers due to their sexual or gender identity, ethnicity, age or disability.

Through this project, we linked in with Caerphilly People First to understand the specific barriers faced by individuals with learning disabilities, and found out about a resource developed by Carmarthen Domestic Abuse Services specifically for people with learning disabilities.

The Transform Toolkit was developed by CarmDAS in partnership with Carmarthenshire People First and funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation, to provide accessible information to help people with a learning disability identify and escape domestic abuse.

The toolkit uses a traffic light system to denote different types of information. Red denotes vital information, amber important information, and green more personal “holistic” information. It can be used by professionals and individuals to communicate about domestic abuse more effectively.

In the spirit of sharing learning within the Welsh Women’s Aid network and broadening the reach of this resource, CarmDAS has given us permission to create a Gwent version of the Transform Toolkit, featuring details of local support services.

We are grateful to CarmDAS for supporting us to reduce barriers for people with learning disabilities and adopt new approaches to ensure their needs are met.
