Code: SGC/22/0925 Trauma Awareness and Recovery Training

Trauma can arise from single or multiple events and can be experienced in numerous ways. Trauma can result in significant physical and mental impacts which in turn may have an effect on behaviour, on recovery and on a range of socioeconomic factors that are themselves a risk for poor physical and mental health. As we know from the research and work on Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the impact of trauma can have a significant and often lifelong impact; impacts can also be intergenerational.

The importance of a trauma informed and responsive approach has been elevated by the impacts of Covid-19 on children, young people and adults. Covid-19 has exposed significant inequality and had implications on the levels of need in relation to bereavement, financial hardship, mental health, domestic violence and complex safeguarding across the population. The further development of trauma informed approaches across the system is a key part of our recovery and response.

This training session is aimed at managers or staff in any sector who work with adults or children and would like to know more about trauma and it’s impacts on people and how to start thinking about supporting recovery for people who have experienced trauma. Delegates will be given the presentation so that they can deliver the awareness raising sessions in their own settings and teams. The training will also be supported by a resource manual. Once trained, delegates will be invited to join our growing Adversity and Trauma Ambassador Network. Existing Ambassadors can also attend. 

This course is FREE of charge. If you would like to find out more about trauma informed work going on across South Glos and the Adversity and Trauma Ambassador Network, please contact trauma-informed@southglos.gov.uk

Active engagement in these sessions is required so that the facilitator can ensure everyone’s emotional safety. Participants are encouraged to have a named support person they can contact if they need emotional support at any point during the training.

Code: SGC/22/0843 Disability Equality at Work

Three quarters of disabled people have left a shop or business because of poor disability awareness. The Equality Act 2010 states that service providers must ensure that they meet the requirements of equality law. This includes making sure staff are sufficiently trained to deal with and support customers or service users, along with the need to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people.



For South Gloucestershire Council employees, this training links to ‘Empowering Others’ and ‘Customer and Community Focussed’ whereby employees are aware of how to meet the diverse needs of our customers and take care to be inclusive. These are part of the Behaviours within the Council's Framework.



This course will help staff to develop their understanding of the difference between the Social and Medical models of Disability, give guidance on legislation and best practice and help employees to understand how to better support disabled staff and customers/service users. The session will include a built in action plan addressing current barriers to supporting disabled people.


This 1-day workshop will provide the skills to help meet these essential service requirements.
