EMERGENCY SHELTERS COURSE
Thu 29 June 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
This one-day course will improve your competence to manage the diverse human aspects of sheltering people following an emergency, and the short-term needs of victims of modern slavery investigations. It is aimed at organisations with statutory duties under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, and voluntary organisations who support the statutory services.
There will be a detailed consideration of the types of shelter that may be required to be set up by local delivery partners in response to an emergency, including a Survivor Reception Centre, a Family and Friends Reception Centre, a Rest Centre, and a Humanitarian Assistance Centre. The course will also consider the different requirements for a Rest Centre established in response to a modern slavery investigation.
At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Understand the legal context for humanitarian and human aspect management under the UK’s Civil Contingencies Act 2004, and supporting guidance;
- Describe the different models used for sheltering people in emergencies, their purpose and internal layouts;
- Identify the key resources, people skills and documentation required for operating these facilities, and their safe management;
- Prepare and complete relevant documents used in rest and shelter facilities, for recording, monitoring and supporting individual clients that use the facilities;
- Establish a Crisis Support Team to provide support to those affected by an emergency, through one or more of the shelter models;
- Consider and manage challenging scenarios that frequently occur in these facilities, and develop practical solutions;
- Recognise the different needs of individuals who are victims of modern slavery, and the additional services that local authorities and others need to provide when setting up a rest centre during modern slavery investigation
This course is aligned with the latest UK Government guidance on supporting individuals affected by emergencies, and UK National Occupational Standards for Civil Emergencies AA1, AA2, AA3, AB1, AC1, AF2, AG4 and AH1
