MORE East Enders will be able to spot the tell-tale signs of domestic violence as the council provides training to local organisations.

Officers from Tower Hamlets Homes are amongst the first to benefit from the domestic violence awareness training this month.

It will give staff a better understanding of the impact of domestic violence on adult victims and children.

They will find out what to do if someone tells them about a problem and what support services are available. Information on key signs, which can indicate domestic violence, will be discussed.
