The services who attended reported back that they found the day useful, with 100% stating that there were no sessions that they would remove or add from future workshops.
Some of the comments from the services that attended the day include:
Excellent course. Really useful to interact with others from different departments to try to decide ways that we can improve our practise.
Very useful workshop, really good incentive to start the process which doesn’t look nearly as scary now!
Great help and a welcoming team leaves me happy to carry on and pick up the phone when I need help.
