Welcome to Training

The Lucy Faithfull Foundation is the only UK-wide charity dedicated solely to preventing child sexual abuse:

Our child sexual abuse and exploitation training is delivered by experienced and specialist practitioners who are involved in undertaking specialist assessments; we provide clinical judgments for statutory and voluntary agencies and as Expert Witnesses in Court.

We offer direct therapeutic interventions for children, young people and for adults. We have a wealth of knowledge about our subject, a great deal of insight into the behaviour of those who sexually harm others, and a real understanding of the impact issues on victims, protective carers and other family members.

We offer conferences, seminars and set one day workshops that participants can access on an individual basis, and our bespoke training programme is available for groups and organisations and is tailored to the needs of the individuals and the needs of their organisations.

One day workshops and courses:

We offer a selection of set one day workshops and courses. These range from understanding abuser behaviour to assessing non abusing mothers and partners and child sexual abuse and the internet. Visit our workshop pages for more details.

Courses by subject area:

Bespoke training
