Gwent PoliceOne of the most effective routes to reach and support victims in this complex field is to educate the people around them. That means raising awareness through Schools, Police Forces, CPS, Local Authorities and many more.

Karma Nirvana is at the cutting edge of policy, practice and engagement with those impacted. We remain involved in the delivery of statutory guidance and further developments within government policy. We have devised training days and events for all agencies and helped to develop competence and increase professional confidence. Our training is highly regarded and evaluated, not only for its impact, but for the improved responses in organisations.

Training Testimonials

“Today has totally opened my eyes to what I have heard about but was totally unaware as to the extent. I feel very ignorant and somewhat guilty because of it. I will hopefully be able to take what I have learned today into my practice as a social worker.”
“The day was very informative and thought provoking. Good opportunities to ask questions. Speakers very knowledgeable”
“This was a very absorbing session which exposed myths & made me realise that HBA is not cultural – it’s criminal!”
