Please note that our trainings are only relevant to England & Wales as the law is different elsewhere.

The workshop usually lasts around 2 hours. We run public online trainings fairly regularly, and also run these workshops on request. We ask that your group provide a venue if you request an in-person training, and that you have at least 12-15 people in attendance.
