Public Health training

We offer a range of training throughout the year to frontline workers and volunteers from not-for-profit organisations who work within Warrington to support its residents. 

In the main training is free but in certain circumstances charges will be made for cancellation or non-attendance. This is because late cancellation can prevent training places being offered to other people; and both non-attendance and late cancellation can make a course unviable to run. There will also be charges for private or profit making companies to attend training.

If you attend the training and you are not eligible to attend, then you or your organisation will be charged. If you are unsure if you're eligible to attend please call 01925 443442 for an informal chat

If you are from a private or profit making company you will need to pay to attend our courses. The charges are: 

  • £50.00 per person for any course that lasts up to half a day
  • £100.00 per person for any full day course.

You will not be refunded this amount if you do not attend the course.

Non-attendance charges

If you book onto a course and do not turn up your organisation will be charged:

  • £50.00 per person, upto a maximum of £150.00 for any course that lasts up to half a day
  • £100.00 per person, upto a maximum of £300.00 for full day courses

Your organisation will also be charged the above if you are unable to attend and you cancel your place less than 2 weeks before the planned date of the course.

Cancellations will be taken by email only.  Please email

For full details of charges please download our cancellation/non-attendance policy [pdf]

Alternatively try "Making every contact count (MECC)" which gives a good understanding of the Public Health team, what we do and what we offer.

Group Training

Please don't book more than three staff from the same organisation on to one of our training sessions.  The courses are very popular and if a single organisation books out a large number of places this means we're not delivering a good and fair service to everyone.

Instead, we can offer a bespoke session for your organisation, holding the training at a time and venue to suit you.  So if you're an organisation or a partner agency and you have between 12 and 16 staff to train, fill in our online form to request a group training session and we'll be in touch.  

Group Cancellations 

If you've booked group training with us but you need to cancel the whole session, contact us as soon as possible.  If you don't contact us with at least two weeks notice of the date of the training, any charges will still apply. To cancel please email
