Meet our Trauma Informed Champions
The LSCP has commissioned and worked in partnership with Project 507, a small specialist organisation specialising in transformation of systems that generate violence and perpetuate cycles of trauma. Together, we have created and launched a trauma-informed and anti-racist practice training programme and trained 24 Trauma Champions across all partner agencies. Together, we will cascade this learning throughout the Borough.
The Trauma Informed Champions 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 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 anti-racist.
