Become a registered practitioner

Obtaining the national Certificate for Tackling & Preventing Domestic Abuse will entitle you to register your qualification and role with us.

This qualification equips you with the knowledge and skills required to carry out many of the specialist roles within the sector. Once qualified you are able to practice as a Registered Domestic Abuse Prevention Advocate (R-DAPA), or register and practice using your current professional title e.g. Registered Domestic Abuse Children’s Advocate (R-DACA) or Registered Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (R-IDVA).

What will you gain?

• Recognition within the sector and continuing professional development opportunities.
• Access to targeted resources and information through a dedicated part of the Women’s Aid website (currently in development).
• Networking opportunities and benefits as Women’s Aid promotes the Register of Practitioners to its national network of domestic and sexual violence services.
