Coronavirus (COVID-19)

To ensure that we can support service areas placed under additional demand at this time, we have taken the decision to postpone all learning events that require staff attendance with immediate effect. This position will continue to be monitored based on the advice received from Government.

All our resources are now focused on supporting colleagues with any essential operational skills for critical services.

We will continue to communicate arrangements via our pages, and we encourage colleagues to take advantage of e-learning as part of any revised working arrangements they may be required to do. The application system for learning and development is temporarily unavailable for all new applications until further notice. 

Visit our Coronavirus guidance page to keep up to date with the latest information and advice for staff. For the latest guidance and updates to services for residents, please visit the Newsroom. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

VAWDASV

Violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence

The new stay-at-home rules are intended to keep us safe and protect the NHS, but not every home is a place of safety.  For some, lockdown will increase their risk of domestic violence, emotional abuse, coercive control and even greater isolation. 

The new rules could increase abusers’ power and control, leaving victims with little opportunity to access their usual supportive networks such as work, family or community groups.

We want anyone who is still in a position to help to be able to recognise the signs of abuse and know how they can safely help, whether that is one of the thousands of volunteers assisting our most vulnerable, an emergency contractor, postal services workforce, local shops, or supermarket employee.  That is why we have made our violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence (VAWDASV) online learning module accessible to all (temporary measure during coronavirus outbreak).

Wales will not be a bystander violence or abuse.

Our 45 minute online training can be accessed through guest log on
