Fantastic training from real people who know what they are talking about. Please come back again

It was moving to hear from young people about their own experiences.  Thank you so much for sharing your stories.

Really great Inset - so informative.  I have learnt a lot and could have listened for much longer.  Really engaging presentation style

Mel created a relaxed and informal envirnoment, with plenty of time for us to discuss our thoughts and ideas.

Mel was fabulous at making the children feel at ease and they were happy to share their thoughts and questions.

Mel created a safe space where children felt confident to talk.

What a lovely story - such a great way to talk about different families.
