What people are saying about the conference


Carer Feedback:


“Best training I have attended in 16 years of caring”

"It was all very informative. I didn't know how little I knew"

Adopter Feedback:


  • "Everyone working in a school or professional capacity with children who have suffered trauma/loss should have this as a basic"

  • "Gave a good insight into attachment and other issues, and inspired you to want to do/read more about it"


Professional Feedback:


  • "Very useful to both carers and professionals. Managers need to attend"

  • "This would be helpful for the whole fostering service staff. I also feel it is essential for all foster carers"

  • "I think we've got a bit stuck in our ways in Sheffield. We've done much work on attachment not so sensory stuff. This needs taking into all schools."
