We delivered a training course which met the needs of a diverse staff group. All staff valued the opportunity to meet other members of staff from other agencies within the network. One of the key learning points made by staff was the importance of not being so focused on giving families the solution, but to empower families to generate ideas and their own solutions. The success of the training had led to the commissioning of further training delivery, as the programme is rolled out across the Borough.
