Zero Suicide Alliance
The Zero Suicide Alliance is a collaborative of National Health Service trusts, businesses and individuals who are all committed to suicide prevention in the UK and beyond. The alliance is ultimately concerned with improving support for people contemplating suicide by raising awareness of and promoting FREE suicide prevention training which is accessible to all. The aims of this training are to: enable people to identify when someone is presenting with suicidal thoughts/behaviour, to be able to speak out in a supportive manner, and to empower them to signpost the individual to the correct services or support.

Diocese of Liverpool
As part of our commitment to safeguarding, Bishop Paul has recorded a video to urge church members to complete the new online safeguarding training resource.
Easy to register and access training
The web-based courses, which provide basic awareness for protecting children and vulnerable adults, makes it easier for church members to access training, and you can now register yourself online.
Church of England guidance requires that all those working with children and/or vulnerable adults are trained appropriately – this course fulfils the first level of this requirement.
The Bishops and Archdeacons have mandated that both courses must be completed by all clergy members, all churchwardens and all parish safeguarding representatives in every parish, as well as other members of the church workforce according to their role.
There are two courses, one in Child Protection, one in Adult Safeguarding.
Each course should take less than an hour to complete, though you do not need to finish them in one visit. You can work your way through each course and save your progress, picking up where you left off each time you log in.
The Diocese of Chelmsford has developed the training in partnership with five other dioceses, including the Diocese of Liverpool. Please click on the link below.
Liverpool Training Solutions
Everyone should be able to live their life free from fear and harm but some people are not always able to protect themselves as they are vulnerable because of their age, mental capacity or disability.
Healthcare Professionals working with adults are required to complete a training course for the Safeguarding Adults at Risk (Vulnerable Adults), often referred to as POVA. Please click on the link below.
