About Suzi Moore
I am a Bristol based consultant and trainer who has been working in Social Care and Health for over 20 years. During this time I have developed and delivered support services for marginalized groups, as well as high-quality training packages for professionals across the sectors.
For the last three years I have been working on a freelance basis covering a wide range of subjects that include child sexual exploitation; intra-familial child sexual abuse, hidden harm and neglect; the neuropsychology of brain development; drug and alcohol awareness; resilience and protective factors in children; and basic safeguarding and child protection training.
As well as delivering training for Local Safeguarding Children’s Boards such as Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire and Slough for the last few years, I have also been delivering training bespoke training packages to Independent organisations such as Substance Misuse Services, Education Providers and Youth Offending Institutions.
