Becoming an Ask Me Ambassador

Do you want to join the fight against domestic abuse in your community? Now is your chance to take action!

We're inviting anyone who comes into contact with the general public in their day-to-day life to become an Ask Me ambassador.

The scheme is open to EVERYONE who works, lives, studies or volunteers in the Brighton and Hove area, and comes into contact with your community somehow. This includes bar staff to hairdressers, reception staff to HR teams, dentists, pharmacists, retail staff and community groups.

The training will give you the skills and knowledge to respond when people talk to you about experiences of domestic abuse, and where to signpost people towards the specialist help they need.

The next training dates are below (Please note full training is 12 hours, so it is split over a number of days and you need to be able to attend all sessions) :

- Wednesday evenings of the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th June 18.00 -21.00 each evening
Due to Covid-19 it feels unclear whether these dates will feel like a comfortable time to bring a group together to complete this training, and we wish to remain clear that these dates may be cancelled closer to the time.

The venue is to be confirmed.

If you cannot attend any of these dates, please let us know that you'd like to be added to the mailing list so that you hear about new dates first!

Anyone can sign up to be an Ask Me ambassador; whatever your background, gender or level of knowledge of domestic abuse, we need your support. Please just fill in the form below to register your interest.

If you would like more information about the scheme, have any accessibility requirements or would like to be notified about future training dates, please do not hesitate to contact Meggan Watson via email on [email protected] or on the phone: 07460 771 412.

Please note this training is not for professionals working in the health sector, see here for information & training for professionals.

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Ask Me ambassador!
