Latest news

Newsflash July 2018The Consortium task group will be working hard over the Summer to update all materials in line with KCSiE 2018, WT 2018, Disqualification from Childcare 2018 and the new information sharing guidance. We will not be able to make the new material available to trainers until the final version of KCSiE is published - best advice is not to print loads of handouts in the next few weeks! 

May 2018 - we now have a version of the SR materials for the adult workforce - they have been piloted and seem to be well received. If you want to deliver SR to delegates who only provide services in the vulnerable adult sector, use the contact page to request a copy. 

The education materials were updated (in Jan 2018) & wider children's workforce version in Aug 2017. There will be further updates to both versions in Summer 2018 once we have the final version of the new statutory guidance. 

In addition, we have changed the way accredited trainers access these; in January 2018 you should have received a log-in and password to enable you to download the resources directly from the 'services' page on this website (along with a control sheet so you can quickly see what changes we have made). If you have not received an email from LFF with a password, please contact us. New trainers are also given a password once they have completed the T4T course and returned their signed trainer agreement. 

Trainers previously accredited by NCSL, CWDC or the Lucy Faithfull Foundation can still access these by registering with LFF - contact by email at [email protected] Once you have completed a registration form and submitted this along with a copy of your T4T certificate, you will be sent a copy of the Trainers' Code of Conduct to sign and the materials will be yours soon after.
