This DVD contains two learning packs in PDF format.

B. 50 pages on Asylum Seekers.

The Domestic Violence Series learning pack by no means contains information on every aspect of domestic violence. The subject is too large and complex to be able to do that here. The aim of the learning pack is to provide the learner with an overview of some of the issues about domestic violence from a variety of perspectives. Few people beyond organisations that specialise in domestic violence issues are familiar with the work of different agencies and voluntary groups, such as Women’s Aid.
The learning pack is particularly relevant to people who need to gain an understanding of the so-called ‘multi-agency’ approach to domestic violence in Britain that has been prevalent for the past few years.
