Hidden Sentence Awareness Sessions

Very much like the full day Hidden Sentence training that is for any employees or volunteers whose work brings them into contact with families of prisoners, including health professionals, probation/CRC staff, school staff, child care providers, social workers, youth workers, play workers, local authority staff or community/voluntary workers, Nepacs is also able to offer bespoke training or awareness sessions for organisations ranging from 1 hour to 4 hours.

As the sessions are bespoke, so are the prices.  If you would like to discuss anything further and get a quote then please call 0191 332 3810 and speak with one of the training team.
