“If you are interested in embedding the DDP model into your service, we invite you to our online event where we share some of our experiences.
Our staff and Billy Smythe, our DDP Consultant will share:
- The challenges, the ups and the downs – Our experience of getting to grips with DDP and embedding the principles throughout our service over our first 3 years as a Regional Adoption Agency
- Bringing PACE to ACE – Stories and reflections from staff who have been supported to find realistic ways to balance this relational aspect to their support and care with the statutory aspects and pressures of public sector working.
- Slowing down… to get there faster – How we built confidence in ‘slowing down’ the way support and guidance is offered to families and the culture shift required from ‘rushing’ to solutions, to making time to connect with our adopters
- Talking the talk and walking the walk – how we have woven in DDP informed principles into our policy, processes and the adoption journey.”
For more information about the workshop please see the ‘Becoming a DDP Informed Organisation’ event page.
