Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP)

This Prevent course is specifically aimed at supporting frontline social care staff in understanding the Prevent duty as it relates to safeguarding, what makes children vulnerable, and how to identify risks and report concerns. It will include both core government-approved training and the opportunity for a Q&A and wider discussion. The session lasts 90 minutes.
