Details of the Request

Is training available for staff on how to spot the signs that a person is associated with / involved in a gang? If so, how many members of staff have taken the training, in absolute and percentage terms?

 

Details of the Response

The Trust does not as such cover identifying signs that someone is a gang member. What we do is ask for staff to look for signs that someone may have been radicalised and vulnerable to influence from terrorist organisations (which one may call ‘a gang’).

This is included in safeguarding training which has been attended by 2972 members of staff representing 89% of the workforce.
