Step 1: Tell us who you are


I'm an individual who would like appropriate adult training

Are you thinking about becoming an AA?

Local schemes are responsible for providing training to new appropriate adults. You don't need to get in touch with NAAN to organise your own training.

I'm responsible for an organised appropriate adult scheme

Are you looking to ensure your appropriate adult scheme delivers a high quality service?

NAAN can provide a range of appropriate adults training and support .

Whether you need core training for brand new recruits or refresher sessions for experienced AAs, we'll listen to your needs to deliver training that makes your provision more effective and sustainable.

Options include: 

  • Asking us to deliver your appropriate adult training at your venue
  • Building your scheme's capability to deliver its own training to national standards
  • Combining both of the above. 

You may also be interested in accessing nationally accredited appropriate adult qualifications

My colleagues are sometimes asked to be an AA

Does you team work with children or vulnerable adults who sometimes come into contact with police?

Have you been asked to act as an appropriate adult but been unsure about the role?

Appropriate adults are not always members of a person's family or a dedicated scheme. Professionals and others who are working with a child or vulnerable adult may also be asked to act in the AA role. Your team might be being asked fairly regularly or just occasionally but the potential impact on both the person and their supporter can be very significant.

NAAN can provide appropriate adult training that's tailored to your needs.

I work with police officers

Whether police officers work in custody or carry out voluntary interviews, they need to have a firm grasp of the PACE Codes around children, vulnerable people and procedural safeguards (including the AA). A lack of knowledge in this area creates risks for suspects, victims, police and the wider justice system. 

The PACE Codes are long, complex and regularly changing. There is strong evidence to suggest that officers need additional training and support in this area.

NAAN can provide awareness training that will enable officers to do a better job.
