Training Workshops

Since launching in 2010 we have worked with a lot of organisations that are looking for simple and low-cost consultancy/training solutions, which can make an immediate impact. We’ve therefore developed some fixed services, which can be purchased by any organisation working with families or children.

Each of these services are competitively priced and aim to provide your organisation with loads of take-away ideas and actions to improve your family/children’s department.

Although these may look like off-the-shelf services, rest-assured they will be adapted to match your individual needs and achieve your business goals.
