What’s on Offer at CCWT?

CCWT is introducing the brand new workshop this September – Voice Your Choice – Supported Decision Making Training for Workers – aimed at upskilling and empowering caseworkers to help young people with disability transition from care. We are delighted to have CREATE Foundation on board to deliver this half-day course.

If on the other hand you are interested in learning about the realities of residential care work, consider joining Annette Posimani in her workshop Working with Young People Who Have Experienced Trauma. Other workshops CCWT has on offer this September include:
