It was absolutely brilliant!  Can’t wait for the next one!

I was really impressed with the day, the tutor was very knowledgeable and involved everyone.  I will definitely be recommending this course to my colleagues

I absolutely loved the conference Kate and felt inspired by the end of it. What it did do for me was remind me somehow of why I actually went into advocacy in the first place (sometimes we seem to get so caught up on managerial things, policies and procedures etc that we can lose the person behind it all whether that be staff or service user). I felt that all the speakers spoke from the heart, they were clearly passionate about their roles and that was great. I found the whole day really enjoyable.
