Choosing a word for today is easy - passion. From the outset of today’s Practice Development Workshop the genuine passion that flowed when considering the best way to help children who Action for Children have responsibility for was incredible.

It was the first time I had met Paul Carberry, the Director of Action for Children and Mike Burns, the Assistant Chief officer for Children’s Services in Glasgow and wow - what a powerful combination to lead this outstanding agency. The sense of responsibility shown all the way from the strategic side through to the practitioners who work with families was impressive.

I was privileged to share an energised morning and proud to deliver a Communication Masterclass to staff from across Scotland. Thank you to each and every person for being involved in discussion and keeping the morning so interactive. Keep doing what you do. Thanks also to Dawn for the invitation to speak at the event and for our selfie :-)
