Virtual Delivery via Zoom
We have developed new services and adjusted current provision so it can all be delivered virtually.
Providing local, national and international service development through consultation, training, speaking and writing. Driving the development of services, systems, teams and individuals to address complex challenges of working within public, social and private sector provision.
Our service provision is embedded in our knowledge of relational, and social sciences and our extensive experience of theory to practice interventions. Using a consultation based approach we work collaboratively with organisations, teams and individuals to develop new understanding, ways of working, systems and use of language. We translate the insight of consultation through training, coaching, education and reflective practice to bring about real change.
Orb8 work is based in our understanding of trauma and affective neuroscience and its relevance across a wide range of fields. Our breadth of expertise allows us to offer annual training programmes to meet a wide range of educational needs. We are particularly recognised for our work developing Therapeutically Informed Foster Care and our Mind Your Language Campaign to stop the use of jargon in social care. We are brave enough to use the word love in our compassion focused work.
Dr Jane Herd, Orb8 Founder and CEO is a leading speaker and writer, from small providers and large organisations to national and international platforms; working from the ground up with practitioners and from the top down with senior leaders to challenge existing ways of responding to the needs of vulnerable groups, and to translate this in how we relate, work and deliver real service for ourselves, others and our communities.
Orb8 is driven by a belief in social justice. Through the intelligent use of social and psychological theory and the exploration of our own experience and beliefs we aim to create internal and relational change that will translate into long term, embedded, transformation in the way we work and live together. We seek the absolute value in “no one the same” and meet people where they are with deep respect and allow them to seek their authentic selves as they wish and need to.

As a rethinking of Orb8 and other possible developments a Vision Statement arose which we hope is quite different to the usual dry offering and expands everyone’s vision about the work they do and how they might approach it.
A reflective group process for those considering or new to independent working in the social sector.
I have been very pleased to develop a relationship with the Irish Foster Care Association this year and have presented at their annual conference and fostering week. They also asked me to contribute to their Journal ‘Foster’ on Therapeutic Foster Care.
