Formal half-day training sessions on ‘Managing Allegations Procedures’ (incorporating HR-related processes) can be booked via the Dorset NEXUS website. Courses are scheduled quarterly, with current availability on: 

  • Wednesday 13 October 2021
  • Wednesday 9 February 2022

The Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) service can also provide more informal 1 to 2 hour briefing sessions to group such as community, voluntary or sports organisations, faith groups or language schools.

Our briefing sessions are more discussion-focussed, and can be useful in grouping together specific job roles and considering frequently asked questions or as a form of networking with similar function groups whilst also becoming familiar with LADO colleagues. In discussion, the LADOs will need to prioritise the availability of briefing sessions requested. You can contact the LADO service here:
