Building Relationships is the second stage in our new three-year project to support you to develop relationship-based practice, funded by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
Funded by the Life Changes Trust, Project Return will bring together young people and practitioners to aid our understanding of trauma and trauma-informed practice, and to explore the supportive environments we know are required to support recovery and the development of relationships.
With funding from the Life Changes Trust, we have begun a new project, jointly with the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice, to listen to the voice of care and justice-experienced young people so that their views are given the due weight and attention they deserve.
