This Sex Offender Awareness training can be delivered onsite to groups of up to fifteen attendees and is specifically designed for healthcare support staff providing care for individuals who have a history of offending. Staff who are assessing and reviewing risk are well placed to build communication with convicted sex offenders with a view to safeguarding vulnerable children and adults. Providing facts about sexual abuse is one of the ways to raise awareness about sexual abuse.Info & Booking Enquiry
Awareness of the facts is one of several preventive measures that can be taken to assist you in making better decisions to keep you and others safe.
It is very important when communicating and engaging with convicted sex offenders that support workers remain safe from manipulation, misuse of power and controlling aspects.
