Bespoke Lectures, seminars and workshops

Clare Walker Consultancy also offers bespoke lectures, seminars and workshops on the Freedom Programme, as Clare is fully aware that ones size does not fit all. Clare is more than willing to provide bespoke sessions and workshops dependant on the needs of an individual organisations, their members of staff and service users. For example, you may be holding an awareness raising event, a more formal event or conference. Or perhaps your staff and service users or community require a session more closely tailored to their needs for example LGBTQ, Faith, sexual violence, trafficking or anti terrorism.

Who is this training for?

The Freedom Programme is also available for professionals who are working directly with people, adults, children or families. Or if you are in a role where you are responsible for making decisions about people’s lives

On the professionals training that Clare Walker has delivered over the years, the calibre and diversity of professionals, has evolved hugely, initially delegates were predominantly from services dealing with DV directly. But now we have delegates booking on from statutory, private and third sector agencies. Coming from broader social care services of universal to targeted, school and college based staff, medical practitioners, even a sprinkling of police and judges over the years; as more and more agencies see the benefits of gaining the tools – but still there is plenty of demand for more.

Clare has trained; Local Authorities, Prison Services, SSAFA, Charities, Solicitors, Anti-Terrorism Teams, Universities, Domestic Abuse organisations, NHS, Military, Social Workers, Family Support Workers, Service Managers, Commissioners, Police Officers, Judges, Teachers, Sexual Violence Workers, IDVA’s, Head Teachers, Locality Managers, Nurses, Psychiatrists, Midwives, Health Visitors, Counsellors, Probation Officers, Early Intervention Workers, Prison Officers, GP’s, Creche/Nursery Workers, Family Support Managers, Safeguarding Managers, Refuge Workers, and of course, victims themselves, who could be in any of the roles listed. Essentially the list truly is endless.
