Increasing support capacity and work satisfaction amongst your team by providing training and reflective practice

Effective workforce development plays an essential role in the delivery of best practice.  When done properly the Return On Investment is huge: building resilience, shared outcomes and improved management of complex situations. 

The Healthier Wales report identified “The best new models being developed in Wales share a common characteristic: a broad multidisciplinary team approach where well-trained people work effectively together and all the up-to-date and relevant information...” and further stated “To support these new models of care, we must strengthen the support, training, development and services available to the workforce with a focus on building skills across a whole career and supporting their health and wellbeing.”

Learning and development investment for people working with vulnerable individuals has never been more needed. To deal with any complex issue means joint-working between different agencies is vital, especially as more individuals are experiencing complex needs and co-occurring vulnerabilities.

The skills, knowledge and expertise needed within the health, social, housing and criminal justice sectors are broad; with a strong emphasis on both specialist and non-specialist awareness. To reduce the harm and provide appropriate, safe and effective interventions, it is essential that targeted training is offered to those who need further support in developing their professional skills, understanding and curiosity.

Based on direct experience our team understands the extent of these issues, behaviours and harms that service users experience and the importance of embedding appropriate psychologically/ trauma informed environments and psychosocial interventions into the work that they do to improve the impact of their support.   We offer different packages to suit the size of your team and depths of your pocket!
