The course is introductory training for those aged 18 and over from statutory, voluntary, independent and community organisations, who work across all sections of the community working with children and young people (specifically staff, including volunteers, who are in contact with vulnerable groups and who may become aware of possible abuse). This may include colleagues from community groups, faith groups, housing, community development roles, sports development staff and disability specialists.
