Exciting new developments in the Somerset Trauma Informed Network!

The Somerset Trauma Informed Network is a group of individuals and organisations who are committed to a journey of becoming more trauma informed in their practice and policy.

From April 2024, you can join the Network to receive updates about new resources, upcoming training and learning opportunities! We also have information pages as part of the SSCP website, including a Resource Hub for practitioners, which we will continue to grow with input from the Network.

The Network will be holding events to bring people together who are passionate about trauma informed approaches, with a range of speakers including experts by experience. This will be an opportunity to highlight good practice and innovation nationally and within our area.

As part of our series of events, we are excited to announce that we will be holding a Forum Week in June which will focus on Trauma Informed practice. Throughout the week, we will be hearing from a range of practitioners across agencies who will deliver the following sessions (13:00-14:00):
