What people say about our training

"The training was delivered by such an experienced practitioner with so much knowledge and insight into the immigration system and specific situation of migrant families and safeguarding. Brilliant to have so much honesty and directness. Inspiring to hear from someone who is fighting structural injustice."

"I found the training very interesting. Nick's enthusiasm and focus on the systemic issues that cause safeguarding concerns were particularly stimulating."
