With the increase in prisoners with a record of sexual offending held on general wings rather than in segregated accommodation, more prison staff are having to be aware of the risks associated with managing and monitoring sex offenders. Updated in 2016 to reflect current practice, the aim of this course is to raise awareness of sexual offending activity within the prison setting which may present a risk to children or vulnerable adults through mail, telephone, photo and visits contact. This course is particularly relevant to staff dealing with letters, PIN phones, visits, and Security Information Reports.
Following our work on "Defensible Decisions", where we examined the experiences of the faith community in responding to sexual offences, we have developed a new course for those working in faith-based organisations - either in ministry, as staff, or volunteers - to help them reduce the risk of sexual offending.
This seminar-style course is designed for practitioners currently working with people with learning disabilities, who are willing to bring and share their existing professional knowledge and experience of this client group.
TDI offers one and two day standard courses and also works with individual providers to tailor courses to meet their particular requirements.
TDI has provided courses on the safeguarding of children and other vulnerable groups to housing associations and on behalf of local government organisations.
