We deliver training to frontline practitioners working in the health, education, social, youth and community sectors in either a professional or voluntary capacity. Since 2001, we have delivered our evidence-based, accredited and evaluated training to over 1,500 frontline practitioners.

We offer a range of training programmes, including ABLE  and Ag Eisteacht4Business, which are built on our core values of time, attention and respect. We focus on relational capability which is the capacity of people to establish and maintain close relationships, both at home and in the wider community, as a key determinant of health and wellbeing.
