Free Reflective Workshop

The workshop is free and is intended for foster carers, residential staff and their managers.

Individuals who cannot access training in their workplace or organisations which do not wish to run these workshops can chose to send representatives to a one day Reflective Workshop. Here, attenders will hear more about the Food for Thought project and think together about how this might apply to their setting.
This one day training is at a cost of £80. Places are limited to 12 in each group.
Hosted Reflective Workshops
Organisations can opt to fund a member of the Food for Thought team to deliver a one day workshop to their staff or foster carers. Numbers at a workshop are capped at 12 and the organisation is responsible for arranging the venue and the attenders. The cost of this is £400.
Peer Support Groups
Once staff or carers have attended a workshop, the Food for Thought project recommends that they have the opportunity to discuss their own experiences/issues relating to care and food. In order to support this, a member of the Food for Thought Team can co-facilitate a group as a means of supporting future facilitators. There is currently no charge for this.
