Women’s Aid are looking for community members in Hastings and St. Leonards to join our “ask me” scheme and create communities against domestic abuse. We’d love for you to be part of the scheme. The “ask me” scheme will train members of the community to become ask me ambassadors. The training will increase your awareness of what a helpful response to domestic abuse looks like, and give you the knowledge and skills to signpost people towards the specialist help they need.
