We'll help you find the words to ASC
Because the people affected by domestic abuse are our patients, our clients, our colleagues and our friends.
Who are we?
ASC is a Medics Against Violence and VRU partnership programme supported by the Scottish Government.
Ask Support Care
ASC is a training programme aimed at anyone who may encounter those affected by domestic abuse in the course of their day-to-day job. From doctors and dentists to vets, firefighters and hairdressers we can help you spot the signs of domestic abuse, ask the right questions and ensure those affected get the support they need. We can all ASC.
ASC is a day long course. We use a train the trainer approach so employees can go back to their workplace and pass on the key skills they’ve learned to others. You don’t need prior training or experience of working with domestic abuse to become an ASC trainer.
Our training uses a mixture of presentations, group work exercises and our own films. On completion of training you will be able to download all of our resources for use in your own training sessions. We can also provide ongoing support for your own training.
