The event marked the culmination of a collaborative initiative between TASC, The Irish Banking Culture Board - IBCBSafe Ireland, and the Money Advice and Budgeting Service - MABS, to design and deliver a bespoke financial resilience training initiative to support victims of domestic abuse. The training programme ran from October 2022 to March 2023 and 36 specialist domestic violence keyworkers working with Safe Ireland member organisations across Ireland completed the training. HERE you can find all materials and the evaluation of the programme.
