    Thanks to all the carers and young people and staff that joined up for our Child safe Organisation training on 30th May 2017. It was great to get to audit our systems and experience first hand how we can as a community make sure that the opinions and voices of young people are given traction in our everyday practice. We recently invited a young person onto our staff recruitment panel, and will be announcing our new Young Ambassador for 2017.
