drop-IN

 

Overview …

We recognise that programmes can be a great injection of skills, belief and and a new found enthusiasm.  However, we also know that sustainable change does not happen overnight and to carry us through that transition period we may need a little ‘top up’!

 

With this in mind we run a drop-IN session every week for anyone who is looking for someone to simply listen to their journey and gently help them rediscover the next steps to their chosen destination.
