Training and Professional Development
Our training is informed by our unique model of practice and expertise in working with young women affected by criminal exploitation and violence.
Our training is informed by current and former service users, who may facilitate training if they wish, as part of a paid contract with Abianda.
Having young women who have been affected by gangs or county lines influence training content and delivery ensures that professionals from a wide range of sectors and specialisms understand the realities of young women’s lives and experiences.
All delegates must attend our 3-hour introductory module Working with Young Women and Girls Affected by 'Gangs' and County Lines
Commissioners may then select additional modules
