SEA provides training opportunities to enable people to participate effectively within housing, health and social care settings. We believe that one of the best ways to do this is through peer to peer training. We have found that this is beneficial both to the person being trained and to those delivering the training.
We work with service users to train their peers on the effective running of formal meetings. This provides people with the skills and knowledge to feedback and enact change within their service at a strategic level. Our peer trainers have also delivered a teaching module on reflective practice to social work students at a local university. This generated excellent feedback and enabled the students to view their role from the perspective of a service user.
SEA staff can visit services to deliver short training sessions on effective involvement and participation. This focuses on how to involve service users and the benefits this brings both to them and your service. All our training can be tailored to suit individual needs.
