NSCP Hidden Men Level 3

Recent research has identified that too often, even if unwittingly, services enable men to be absent and do not maximise opportunities to identify and respond to the vulnerabilities and risks that some men can present. You will need to be able to attend both the morning & afternoon session if you book onto this course. The course aims to look at both national & local issues relating to engaging with men, specifically  looking at issues from practice, blocks and difficulties and practical skills development. This event is for all practitioners who work directly with children and families .
