S.T.A.N.D is for the prevention of Grooming Behaviour's that lead to the Manipulation, Exploitation, Abuse and Coercive Control of others. 


This Training has been developed in the face of growing recognition that children and adults can become victims of Manipulation, Coercion, Control, Abuse and Exploitation from others who seek to gain from their misery. Understanding how this happens is crucial if we want to prevent it. 

The impact of grooming can be devastating, leaving victims embarrassed and battling with feelings of shame and guilt. Having been conned by someone they where led to believe they could trust - victims often blame themselves.

S.T.A.N.D© for Prevention offers early intervention, providing vital insights into the process of grooming and grooming behaviours, providing information and tools for prevention.

Innovative and thought-provoking; this training will help to increase your confidence in recognizing the signs of Grooming and how to respond to it.


Delivered to professionals & organisations tasked with Safeguarding, this one day thought-provoking course is CPD accredited.
