No Barriers Here Facilitator Training

We offer our training at The Mary Stevens Hospice, based in the West Midlands, and also offer bespoke delivery for providers across the health and social care sector working in any healthcare or community setting. Bespoke packages are a popular choice for organisations and stakeholders who are working in partnership and looking to address inequity in palliative and end of life care.

“The No Barriers training team came and delivered a session in house. The education was great, and all attendees were very engaged. It was attended by both hospice staff and multi-professionals within the local Learning Disability support teams. Many of the group had not previously met, but with the facilitation of the session everyone was quickly chatting about the project and how they might use this new tool. This very practical session meant we all left with art to reflect our own advance care plans as well as an enthusiasm to facilitate our own groups.”

What do people say?

“It’s the ethos of inclusion…this training is so relevant to aid people to think about their wishes in a thoughtful and equitable process. Everybody in our organisation should be trained in this.”

“In 20 years of nursing, this is the best education day that I’ve attended.”

“What a fantastic inspirational training session you delivered! Thank you both very much for the entire day. Your style of delivery, content and the resources were superb and I am still buzzing about the day!”
