Who can attend?

We welcome everyone who works in the emergency services including front-line staff, operational staff, senior managers, call-centre staff etc.

How much does it cost?

As part of a government grant, YouBeU delivered over 100 full-day training events between 2019 and 2020. Following popular demand, we continue to offer the course as a discounted rate to individuals and organisations affiliated with emergency services 


The rate for a one day in-house training workshop is £990 + VAT. However there are significant discounts available for voluntary and public sector organisations. Our workshops are suitable for groups of up to 20 which would mean cost per head could be as low as £80 plus VAT.

Shorter sessions and bespoke quotes for multiple days training available on request.

What type of funding have you received?

We have received funding through the Department of Culture and Media and LIBOR to provide free training to emergency services until March 2020. This means that our training is fully-funded with no costs to the organisations that book us. Our current funding period expires at the end of March 2020.

What do you cover in the content?

You can find a template agenda here. We are also able to tailor the content to suit the needs/requests of specific personnel and/or departments. The content has been designed by a lead trainer who worked closely with front-line service personnel from the Police, Ambulance and Fire services, Military and RNLI. Through interactive sessions, attendees consider how to best look after themselves, their colleagues and others when confronted with distressing scenes/events – perhaps in combination with personal bereavement.

Do you have any promotional material?

You can download free posters here.

What are the practicalities related to the training? 

We offer a full or half-day training, for groups of up to 20 people ‘in-house’ or externally based on your preferences, needs and availability. We recommend (if possible) that the full-day course is chosen at an external venue close to you (typically a conference suite in a reputable hotel). By doing so, we are able to provide all equipment, a confidential space, heating/air-conditioning, comfortable desks, and regular teas/coffees and pastries along with a full working lunch.

Is it possible to book more than one training day?

Yes, often provide multiple training days to ensure that everyone who wants to attend has a chance. 

Will this service be evaluated?
