For most of us, having a serious conversation with a young child can be a challenge. Even more so if you’re concerned that they might be experiencing or at risk of abuse.

Research from the NSPCC’s Let Children Know You’re Listening project shows that adults often don’t feel secure in how to approach such a difficult subject. The charity has drawn on what they learned through this research and collaborated with Attensi on ‘Talk to Me‘: an interactive training simulation designed to give adults the confidence to hold difficult conversations with children about abuse.

Join us in conversation with the NSPCC’s Head of Strategy, Laura Randall, to uncover the lessons and insights from this one of a kind simulation, and how they can be applied in the real world.

In this discussion you will learn:


✅ How simulation training can help to tackle abuse through the power of conversation.

✅ How safeguarding experts from the NSPCC ensured the scenarios in ‘Talk to Me’ are as true to life as possible.

Testimonials and statistics on the impact the simulation has had since launch.

✅ Plans for this immersive form of training to be extended to more topics in the future.
