IAP Web Launch

April 2010

The Independent Advisory Panel has launched a new website which it hopes will be used as a resource for those working within the different custodial sectors to share good practice and learning on preventing and reducing the number of deaths in custody.

National Training Programme

As part of its commitment to the provision of high level training and regional best practice, the association is launching a National Training Programme, providing a comprehensive level of training to all involved in the process.

Two pilot training days will take place on 30 and 31 March 2010, with numbers strictly limited to ensure maximum benefit to all participants: ‘Leading the Way’ covers the governance issues of running a custody visiting scheme and the ‘A-Z of custody visiting’ covers the basics of custody visiting for all involved in the process.

  • 30 March - ICVA National Training Programme pilot: ‘Leading the Way’ 
  • 31 March - ICVA National Training Programme pilot: ‘A-Z of Custody Visiting’
