Intimacy Coordination is a new field and as such all practitioners are constantly gaining additional skills and undertaking on-going training, re-evaluating processes and protocols and doing all possible to broaden their knowledge base and provide best practice when on set, As a team we use each experience as an opportunity to learn and grow, and we will ask for your feedback to assist us with this every time we work with you.

In addition to core intimacy skills training our intimacy team have additional skills, including: Conflict Resolution, Covid Health and Safety, Covid Contact Tracing, Managing Covid Risk on Production, Sexual Harassment Awareness and Bi-stander Intervention, Mental Health Awareness, Mental Health First Aid, Bullying and Harassment for Employees, Unconscious Bias for Employees, Safeguarding Children (Level 2), Consent, Equality and Diversity, LGBTQIA+ Awareness, Creative Industries Safety Passport
