"Feelings Focused" Training
Delivered By Care Experienced Adults

Described as "a catalyst for change" by the Department of Education.

We help adults understand and relate to young people by sharing our stories and care experience. By providing an insight into children’s views, concerns and feelings of their own lives in care.
