Working across the Criminal Justice Sector

In line with recommendations from the Macpherson report following the murder of Stephen Lawrence, we have been instrumental in bringing together multi-agency partnerships to deliver diversity and inclusion training to communities across England. These partnerships involved organisations from across the public, private and voluntary sectors. The training involved a rich and diverse mix of people including, teachers, fire fighters, police officers, nurses, community workers and customer service personnel, which enhanced the breadth of discussions and learning during the training.

Areas of learning

We have also worked on a single agency basis on a range of topics including:

  • Leadership development
  • Having difficult conversations
  • Tackling bullying and harassment
  • Dignity and respect
  • Equality and diversity
  • Team building and communication
Equality and Diversity, inclusion, equality act

The training is expertly run, interactive and really makes people think. Being able to step into someone else’s shoes and see the world from their perspective was enlightening and revealing. In terms of content, it was well-researched, realistic and recognisable. Everyone should have the chance to participate in this one – it is brilliant.
