Additional support

Tailored advice

As the national centre of expertise, NAAN can provide tailored support to improve the effectiveness of appropriate adult provision. We have assisted:

  • Existing providers;
  • Organisations considering starting provision;
  • Commissioners (both existing and potential).


NAAN provides a range of training for organisations. We'll listen to your needs and draw on our resources and experience to develop bespoke training that makes your scheme more effective and sustainable. Examples include: 

  • Appropriate adult scheme co-ordinator training;
  • Appropriate adult training for volunteers;
  • Appropriate adult training for employees;
  • Awareness training for police custody officers, health and social care staff.

We're really proud of the quality of our training and are always seeking to improve based on client feedback. We publically share a live summary of all the feedback we've received so new clients can be confident. Just click on button below to view it. 

Please note that NAAN does not provide training to individual AAs who are acting outside of an organised scheme or other professional framework.
