Good Practice

Each subject within our Good Practice training is focused on an infrastructure of interactive workshops and discussion, followed by access to the appropriate good practice resource. Currently, there are three events available in Good Practice. Scroll down for available training dates. Our three courses and their resources are: 

  • Dementia and Befriending

    • Good Practice in Dementia Training: Our training toolkit is filled with resources, activities, and information for training staff and/or volunteers to better support those with dementia. All materials and training activities can be taken, altered, and/or used within your project as you see fit.
    • Good Practice Guide Supporting People with Dementia: Guidance on running a befriending project that supports service users with dementia. This Good Practice Guide is exclusive to this course.
  • Running a Befriending Service 

    • Good Practice Guide: Running a Befriending Service (Membership exclusive). Attending this course is a means to access the booklet without being a member.
  • Management and Leadership in Befriending Projects
