Partner Organisations are UK statutory services recognised by DDP Connects UK as working closely with DDP Trainers and Consultants to implement a DDP-informed practice model.
In November 2018, The Connect Service, Ealing Council, became DDP Connects UK’s first Partner Organisation. At their annual renewal in November 2019, with Julie Hudson and Alison Keith, DDP Trainers and Consultants, their status as a DDP Connects UK Partner Organisation was renewed for another year.
In addition to Ealing commissioning Level One and Two trainings each year, a group of Connects staff receive regular supervision from Julie and Alison, with Alicia Fairhurst, Principal Clinical Psychologist, having recently started her practicum to become certified as a Practitioner in DDP. Jill Pearce, Head of Training and Development, Hannah Foxcroft, Head of Connect, and Alicia have worked hard throughout the year to maintain trauma-informed services and integrate PACE throughout Ealing’s Brighter Futures practice model.
In addition, Carolyn Fair, Director of Children and Families, is a member of the team supporting the newly agreed £2.1 million DDP research grant lead by Helen Minnis with NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research Programme.
How to become a Partner Organisation
Please note that becoming a Partner Organisation is not a certification process and is separate from DDPI’s Organisational Certification.
If your organisation is working with one or more DDP Consultants or Trainers please discuss with them about the process and how to apply. If not, for more information please get in touch using our contact page.
