Phoenix Fostering hosted a DDP Level One training in early June 2014, with Julie Hudson, trainer. Phoenix is an independent fostering agency, established in 2007, providing therapeutic family placements for children and young people with complex needs and challenging behaviours. They are based in Herefordshire, with foster carers currently offering placements in Herefordshire, Powys, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Telford, Wolverhampton, Dudley, the Birmingham area and Gloucestershire.
A number of the staff at Phoenix had previously attended Level One trainings across the UK and the organisation hosted this Level One to enable all staff to attend. The photo is of some of the staff. Phoenix kept the group small, with some external participants, and we had a good 4 days in Phoenix’s new base in Wigmore, near Leominster.
