Embedding trauma informed care and practice

The Better Chances Forum (BCF) is based on collaboration and shared learning. Creating opportunities to listen to organisations experience are key elements of our work together. This year the BCF Practice Leadership Group would like to understand how we can support BCF members to embed trauma informed care and practice.

BCF members joined us face to face on Wednesday 20 March 2024 to share stories and strategies of how they are embedding trauma informed care and practice in their organisation or practice.

What did we discuss?

  • what we’ve learned?
  • share stories and strategies about how you and your organisation are supporting trauma responsive care and practice
  • responding to unexpected disaster
  • strengthening and embedding strategies within our organisations
  • where to from here; what do we need now?
  • how do we know our practice (TIC) is supporting better chances for children, young people, their families and communities.
