Go Ape Activity Day
23 April 2019
"This was our first time to Go Ape outdoor activity and Morwenna & I had a wonderful time, with our group of young people. The staff were very helpful and I was very impressed with how well they organised the trip. We felt safe and the facilities were great; tidy, clean, also the sandwiches were very delicious! The staff are friendly and patient and have given us lots of help without pressure and promote a collaborative approach to achieving goals. The feedback from our young people was positive. We will be back for even more fun!" Olga Filatova, CSE Practitioner

Alongside this, we were able to attend a number of special interest groups, from services across the country, providing specialist support and sharing their best-practice professional approach when working with anyone affected by exploitation.
