Feedback from attendees:

“A very professional and knowledgeable trainer –everything was covered in a non-threatening way and I now feel much better prepared to deal with child protection issues.”

“Thank you. This has been the best safeguarding training I’ve had, and I’ve had loads. Was very informative.”

We ask that you book no more than four people from one organisation on to this course. From our experience we know that any more than this can affect the group dynamic and the session can end up focused on one particular group. We would like everyone to feel included in the training – sessions are far more exciting when there is a good mix of diverse participants from different organisations!
