We listen. We care. We love.

Mapping Relationships

Mapping Relationships is the first stage of a 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.
