TARGET GROUP

This course is targeted to those who require awareness training to recognise the signs, patterns and risks, including grooming and online abuse, to keep children safe from child sexual abuse. It refers to the role of professionals and volunteers, employer’s responsibility and HR professionals.

Group Level 1 (irregular contact with children) or Level 2 (regular contact with children) or above (including strategic leads) as set out in the Safeguarding Competency framework in London Safeguarding Child Procedures. Inter-Collegiate Standards Level 1 and 2 for health professionals.

AIM

The training aims to raise awareness about the risks that child sexual abusers pose to children and when to refer concerns for a risk assessment. The focus is on recognising signs, patterns and behaviour that cause concerns and referral pathways to children’s social care.

The training is provided by Lucy Faithfull, a child protection charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse to ensure children are as safe as they can be. They have extensive experience of working with entire families who have been affected by sexual abuse, including young people with inappropriate sexual behaviours (male and female); victims of abuse and other family members. They also run the confidential Stop it Now! Helpline.
