The LSCP Training & Development sub-group commissioned a trauma informed training delivered across the partnership for Trauma Informed Champions to build capacity of leaders and practitioners to adopt anti-oppressive and trauma informed principles at the heart of their practices, empowering them to identify and tackle structural issues leading to a more trauma responsive borough. 

Meet our Champion Trainers from different partner agencies who have successfully completed training and will each contribute to the drive for a change to our policies and practices to ensure that our borough is trauma-informed and ant-racist. 

The Welfare Service provides extensive welfare, wellbeing and safeguarding support for 19+ students for the duration of their course and offers each and every student tailored support, ensuring that students are provided with resources, advice and guidance so that they can make informed decisions.
