L&D Training Partner With UK SAYS NO MORE

We are so pleased to announce that L&D Training have joined UK SAYS NO MORE as a campaign partner.

Find out more about their services to help employers deal with sensitive issues such as sexual assault and harassment:

L&D Training
offers a range of services that help employers deal with sensitive issues including sexual abuse/assault, consent, revenge pornography and harassment. These include awareness raising through presentation and briefing, training for senior manager and small business owners, policy review and development services and direct support for employees through clinics and mentoring service.

Our services are delivered by qualified and experienced individuals and offer a range of compelling benefits for both employers (e.g. improving absenteeism, employee retention and increasing productivity) and for employees (e.g. improved health and wellbeing, confidence, loyalty.)

We support a range of employers including owner-managers within small and micro businesses who may be struggling to understand their obligations, risks and issues in relation to current legislation, senior managers within medium and large organisations who need support with maintaining up-to-date policies, training and support mechanisms and individual practitioner e.g. freelance councillors who need to maintain their continuous professional development.

We are already supporting Plymouth University and the University of St Mark and St John in updating their policies. More Universities, sports clubs and other companies need to be as proactive as these to protect individuals. We offer a free no obligation consultation for anyone.

One Client said:

‘Sexual abuse isn’t a subject I’m comfortable discussing, but when I heard how many people are affected, and the impact it could have on employees’ well-being and productivity, I knew I had to engage with it. Lorna and Debbie made us all feel at ease straight away, and gave us practical ways to support colleagues who might be victims of sexual abuse – without feeling as if we have to solve everyone’s problems’. (2016).

Another Client said:

‘I can’t express enough how much you helped me to let me know what my options were. After chatting to Lorna there was no pressure, just information and guidance on where I could go and what my options were. Thanks to L&D Training I felt supported to talk to the police and be able to start my recovery.’
