Local Authority Designated Officer

We now offer live Teams training every 2 months facilitated by a LADO. This is the preferred way for you to develop your knowledge and understanding about the LADO service. This will give you an opportunity to meet some of the team and to ask any questions.

If you cannot attend the Teams training there is a PowerPoint presentation you can access which will cover the same information.

The LADO training is aimed at all staff and volunteers who are in regular contact with children and young people.
