Protecting people against scams is more important than ever.  Many people are facing multiple issues (rising energy prices, employment and debt, housing, and health problems) and therefore find themselves in vulnerable situations. Scammers are taking advantage of this.  It is vital people have the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.

Places are limited so book early, stating the course, date and time. You can attend one training session or stay for the whole day and cover two courses. Please make your intention clear.
