1.2 Staff with enhanced knowledge - Group 3 champions

Free from Fear partners recognise that some staff need enhanced training on a range of topics if teams are to effectively safeguard vulnerable people living in our homes. This includes training that explores specific areas where additional consideration may be needed to ensure individuals remain safe:

  • Forced marriage and honour--based violence
  • Older person abuse
  • Abuse among young people
  • Working with perpetrators
  • Effects on children
  • Sexual violence
  • Male Victims

Staff teams must recogniise when they must take particular care and avoid generating any additional risk. They need to understand risk factors, including the potential for service-generated risks, which are processes or practices that increase the perpetrator's risk to the tenant, or create additional barriers.
