Training


We've delivered training to a wide variety of organisations within Herefordshire and beyond. Our track record locally – and our ability to draw upon national learning – means we bring local knowledge along with focused mental health expertise to the training we offer.

We can come to your premises, or we can host you at Heffernan House in Hereford if you have a group of 15 or less. We can also run sessions during evenings and weekends if that better suits the needs of you and your team.

To discuss your training requirements, please contact David Harding via email or by calling 01432 372404.
