We offer accredited and non-accredited training courses and workshops for charities, schools, families, faith leaders, and public sector professionals.

Throughout our courses, we centre those most vulnerable to abuse and harm and highlight the importance of accounting for identity and encouraging inclusive practices in order to better safeguard children and young people. A young person’s identity; their gender, faith, culture or ethnicity can be a factor in how professionals and other adults engage with them and respond to safeguarding concerns. In contexts where there is diversity between practitioners and decision makers, and young people, the presence of unconscious and conscious bias and prejudice may be more likely, which can increase barriers to identifying safeguarding concerns and shaping appropriate responses.

We work to ensure our material is mindful of different faith and cultural contexts, and tackle challenges to cohesion by dispelling misunderstanding and misinformation about the roles religion, ethnicity and culture have in determining both perpetrators and victims of abuse.

Our training can be delivered in-house, and we run several training events throughout the year. For open events we will take bookings through Eventbrite. View our Eventbrite page for upcomning dates. Read more about our courses below.
