Nearly halfway through the year and, as ever, we appreciate the new experiences and learning that we gain through working with people. The recent launch of the national 10 year drug strategy with Sefton Drugs Action Team was a particular highlight for us (pictured) – and we got to work at Aintree Racecourse again! Did you know that Red Rum is buried to the side of the finishing line so he can see all the winners come home?!

New work included developing training days with County Durham”s children”s homes staff to look at the interaction between challenging behaviours and child protection issues. Soon we”re flying out to Northern Ireland for the first time and then, it”s not long till our latest training DVD reaches completion!
