“I have just completed the two day “Gang and Exploitation workshop” Thank you! You have validated everything that I believe. Life it tough for our students but it doesn’t have to be hopeless. The tools and ideas you shared have empowered me to tackle even the most challenging situation. It was a brilliant use of my time and I am now more passionate than ever. I will continue to view situations through a trauma lens and put the students at the heart of my decision making. Every child really does need a champion”

Deputy Head Teacher, The Jo Richardson Community School, Dagenham

“Thank you so much for the two day ‘Gangs and Exploitation Workshop.’ The course leaders were passionate, informed and engaging. I now have a wider range of tools and strategies to use with my hardest to reach young people and their parents. This course proves that all does not have to be lost even when situations are bleak. The focus on trauma and attachment was really key for me and it will change the way I approach each situation I deal with”
