A former support worker for abuse victims and people with severe behavioural problems is helping others in the care sector keep themselves safe at work through a new business venture.
Ash Bullman founded MVA Training to teach staff in healthcare, child services and education how to manage people exhibiting violent behaviour, including physical restraint techniques and personal safety tips. The firm is based in Winfarthing but offers mobile services and runs sessions in Norwich.
Mr Bullman, 32, said he hopes the business will be a pathway to launching his own training programme in violence management.
'I thought violence management would be a hard area to sell but it has kept me busy,' the instructor said.
'I want to raise my profile to make people aware that they can get a better level of training. We're looking for the business to be turning over £60,000 eventually.'
