Ask Me - become a community ambassador

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

Break the silence and raise awareness of domestic abuse by becoming an Ask Me ambassador.

This exciting new pilot scheme trains members of the community to become Ask Me ambassadors in the following ways:

  • Increasing awareness of what a helpful response to domestic abuse looks like
  • Giving the knowledge and skills to signpost people towards the specialist help they need.

Anyone can get involved – you just need to work or live in the Brighton, Hove and Eastbourne areas and come into contact with your community somehow.

From bar staff to hairdressers, reception staff to HR teams, dentists, pharmacists, retail staff and community groups - whatever your role, we need your support.

In return, we can offer you free two-day training as well as on-going support, essential skills and the chance to make a real difference to the lives of people you encounter every day.

Domestic abuse is prevalent in our society, and this is your chance to take action to stop it.

Training dates are as follows:

  • Thursday 4th & Friday 5th May (9:30 - 4:30pm)
  • Saturday 24th June & Saturday 1st July (9:30 - 4:30pm)
