"Manchester United Foundation thoroughly enjoyed the training session with Freedom Personal Safety, Julie and Elaine provided us with a lot of really important take away messages. All the staff learnt a lot from the session and Julie and Elaine made a difficult topic very engaging and interactive. The Foundation and staff were really keen to do more work with Freedom Personal Safety and put more sessions on with our participants after they had such a good experience themselves. I cannot thank Julie and Elaine enough for their support and being such great people to work with. "

Hannah Mitchell, Female Development Officer, Manchester United Foundation

"The ‘How To Be An Active Bystander’ sessions were brilliant! They were delivered with expertise and were fun as well as educational. The sessions highlighted for many just how much they didn’t know about harassment and in particular what ‘sexual harassment’ meant. Being taught how to help others being given unwanted attention was so useful. I would highly recommend the training to anyone who might want to be an active bystander in tricky situations. The training would give them confidence not to walk away, but to stay and support using techniques taught during the session to protect others. "

Christine Aspinall, Manager St Johns Centre, Old Trafford

"Julie is a fantastic trainer and managed to make a very difficult topic easy to navigate and talk about. The Active Bystander training was not only thought provoking but practical and useful in both our every day and working lives. It was very interesting to learn how little actions can make such a big difference without the need for confrontation or escalation. We are hoping to roll out more of this training to our frontline staff at Transport for Greater Manchester as we feel learning the 5 D’s will be an extremely useful tool for our staff on our Bus Stations and Interchanges. "

Nicole Zanchetti, Assistant Duty Manager, Transport for Greater Manchester
