Service and Staff Development

Introduction

Orb8 believes that all traumatised, hard to reach and marginalised children, young people and young adults deserve the highest quality and excellence in service provision delivered by agencies and staff with a good understanding of the client group, skilful in engaging with them with sufficient support to tolerate the emotional impact which can be a significant aspect of this work.

Services

All of Orb8’s interventions are aimed at facilitating the positive development of provision to traumatised children and young people. We aim to work in partnership with services, organisations and agencies to gain a thorough sense of current practice and how we could best assist in developing organisations, management, staff and carers. As well as working with existing services we can assist in the creation and development of new services.

Organisational Consultation

We see all our provision as being bespoke and any programme, training or project would be overseen as part of a change management process and evaluated with the organisation we are working with to measure impact and to consider how to further develop provision. Our consultants will work with you to discern your current needs and ambitions and suggest a range of input in regard to service development or provision including organisational and staffing issues. This could be at any and all levels within an organisation and be at a whole system, group, team, service or individual level.

Service user consultation

In respect of individual children and service user groups and specific issues or presentations. This could be to managers, professional networks, staff groups and parents or carers.

Therapeutic service development

Many services wish to offer or be known as a therapeutic provision and need assistance in developing and operating suitable models of service delivery. Using our consultative approach and our wide range of services we can provide a development plan with ongoing consultation and training to support an organisations therapeutic approach. We can include attention to organisational structure and policy and procedures to create a seamless and integrated model. This can be for new or existing services.

Clinical supervision and clinical development

Regular or issue specific supervision or support to managers, workers and carers in respect of their practice and their direct work with CYPYA.

Group supervision

Small group clinical supervision to teams in respect of their work and input with CYPYA.
