Training to ensure people feel safe on our streets

IDAS  are working in partnership with the Office of the Police Fire and Crime Commissioner, City of York, and Scarborough Borough Council to offer free training for local organisations and businesses to help make our streets safer for everyone.

Often, women and girls can feel particularly unsafe on our streets and in our communities. It is important to work together to make sure that everyone can safely enjoy the diverse range of leisure, cultural and entertainment activities in their area. Safeguarding all children and vulnerable adults is everyone’s business.

This training is available to retail, licensed premises, restaurants and all businesses across Scarborough and York City Centre. The training has been designed so that the knowledge and experience gained can be cascaded to your teams to improve safeguarding and the feeling of safety for all. Attendees will receive a resource pack and posters for their premises.

The training will help you to:

  • Understand what can make a person vulnerable and examples of indicators of concern
  • Understand how services can work in partnership to protect vulnerable people
  • Understand how to apply safeguarding knowledge to aspects of your role
  • Understand about confidentiality and how to report concerns
  • Understand your social responsibilities in relation to vulnerable people

Free, online and in person training is available. Click on the links below to reserve your place. Dates in April and May.
