Supporting Survivors

Following trauma, you may feel overwhelmed by fear, sadness, guilt, anger or grief. Some people find it hard to cope and it might take a while to come to terms with what has happened. The support of family and friends is very important. These fact sheets offer ideas to support those you love.

Rebuilding

Returning to work after injury and trauma, or retraining for a new career can be challenging. Long term work absence generally has a negative impact on health and wellbeing. Our tailored, whole-of-person approach provides needs-assessed assistance to achieve meaningful and sustainable employment.

Corporate Training

Statistically, many employees have been exposed to traumas such as accidents or assault. As a manager or leader you and your organisation will benefit from understanding the impact trauma has on your staff, their health and behaviours, and you can learn effective strategies to support your teams.

We stand with individuals and families who have experienced trauma and facilitate support systems to promote positive growth and resilience.

We help organisations identify trauma affected staff and foster a culture of respect and dignity that understands the effects of trauma in the lives of their professional 'family' and provides space, platforms and conversations to overcome challenges and flourish.
