Hidden Harm Programme

9.00am to 4.00pm at Nottingham



9.00am to 4.00pm

Thanks to funding from the Community Safety Fund 2018-19, Nottingham Community & Voluntary Service (NCVS) is working in partnership with the Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) to tackle and reduce hidden harm in local communities.

NCVS will be hosting a one day conference on 18th March 2019 (9am-4pm) aimed at providing the foundation skills and knowledge required for staff and volunteers in smaller community and voluntary organisations to effectively recognise and respond to #HiddenHarm – i.e. crimes and abuses which remain unrecognised, unreported or those for which people struggle to access support and get their voices heard.

Working in partnership with voluntary sector and public sector trainers, the conference will offer a range of presentations and 2 hour workshops which are designed to provide an introduction to issues including:

  • Equality and Diversity (Beverley Lambert – Clear Direction Housing)
  • Risk Assessment of Vulnerable People (NSPCC)
  • Boundaries between Staff/Volunteers and Vulnerable People (Improving Lives)
  • Barriers to Reporting Crime or Abuse (SEA Participation)
  • Information Sharing / Multi-Disciplinary Working/Data Management (Notts Police)
  • Adult Safeguarding (NCVS)

Following the conference day, NCVS will host a week of 3 hour workshops, delivered by a range of organisations that support people affected by specific types of crime or abuse that are often unreported or unrecognised. This will provide staff and volunteers in small community and voluntary organisations the opportunity to build on and apply the foundation knowledge gained at the conference day, by accessing specialist training around issues including:

Domestic Abuse
Adult Safeguarding (Hidden Harm)
