As part of our commitment to supporting planners wellbeing, RTPI South West is hosting some skills-based training.

Following the success of the pilot in the West Midlands, this first in a series of workshops is focused on personal safety. 

This session is designed for anyone working with the public, particularly those involved with consultations and planning enforcement.  Our trainer, from the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, will cover topics such as:

  • Lone and frontline working
  • Identifying and assessing risk
  • Travelling for work
  • Setting boundaries and reporting
  • Responding to physical and verbal aggression
  • De-escalation and defusion techniques
  • Post-incident support

The Suzy Lamplugh Trust is the UK's pioneering personal safety charity and leading stalking authority, established in 1986, following the disappearance of 25-year-old Suzy Lamplugh, an estate agent and lone worker who went to meet a client and never returned.

Suzy Lamplugh Trust is widely regarded as a field expert in lone-working and personal safety training, stalking training, as well as consultancy, campaigning, and support services. It has a long history of working within the Violence Against Women and Girls sector, dealing particularly with stalking and harassment, given that it is believed, and indeed the evidence suggests Suzy may have been targeted by a stalker. The National Stalking Helpline was set up by the Trust in 2010, it has helped over 65,000 victims since its inception, and is the only service of its kind globally.
