Supporting the supporters

Facilitated training Disaster

Support and sustain those with critical roles after disaster - from leaders to the frontline. Minimize burnout, turnover, loss of perspective, impaired decision-making and the flow-on impacts that hinder community recovery. Instead set your essential people up to do well, sustain their work, grow through the process and have maximum positive impact with communities.

Please get in touch to discuss the needs of your organization or team.
