Service description:
The Ann Craft Trust (ACT) was founded by Dr Ann Craft in 1992 under the name of NAPSAC - the National Association for the Protection from Sexual Abuse of Adults and Children with Learning Disabilities.

ACT works to ensure that organisations that support people disabled children and vulnerable adults are aware of abuse and protection issues. We provide services to raise professional awareness and also to increase the knowledge and skills of professionals who can then help reduce the risk of abuse and support people who have been abused.

ACT services are used by a wide range of individuals and organisations including the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, social services departments, health professionals, direct support staff, social care professionals and parents and carers. ACT provides a range of services to organisations in the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors.

Today ACT supports the statutory, independent and voluntary sectors from across the UK to protect disabled children and adults at risk. From our training programmes to consultation services we work tirelessly to improve standards of safeguarding and raise the levels of best practice across health, social care and education. We are seen as one of the UK’s leading providers of safeguarding training, experts in the field of learning disabilities and at the forefront of research for both child and adult safeguarding.

Our services are used by both national and local organisations including the NHS, Police, the Crown Prosecution Service and Social Care. We also support individual professionals as well as parents and carers on how best to support and protect young people and adults from abuse.
