Training and Consultancy Testimonials

Hear from our partners about how they found our training

**********

"Can I say a huge thank you for the amazing training you did for our team. The feedback has been excatly what I wanted plus more. I am confident the quality of our missing interviews will increase but more so the emphasis on putting children at the forefront has been emphasised. The whole team loved the training and have been talking about it all since plus how they intend to change the way they do things as a result. An added bonus has been finding out the services you offer to missing children nationwide so that this can be given to all the children we interview enabling them to access a confidential or anonymous way of serrking help. I couldn't have asked for more. "

"Staff have reported that they now feel much more confident to carry out return interviews with young people and expecially how to pitch the very important initial contact with a young people or their parent/carer. It was felt that the blend of theory and opportunity to roleplay/ rehearse was appropriate and well balanced. I would recommend your training to other providers of return interviews."

Police Officer - Merseyside Police

 "I believe this type of training is imperative to front line officers and can only improve interaction between the police, missing people and their families. The innovative exercises that were used by the trainers as well as the content and supplemental videos used gave me personally a real understanding of the empathy required to work with these people effectively. Not only did it increase my understanding, it was also useful in giving another partner agency we can refer to the exposure needed for timely referrals by officers which will improve the service we provide as well as making difficult times for people affected that little bit easier."
