We've been working on something exciting...
07 Jan, 2020
Here at Shantona we have been working on something great. For over 21 years we’ve been running culturally sensitive services in and with the local community in Harehills and Gipton. We’ve been working on bringing our 2 decade-long experience into a set of trainings and resource tools to help practitioners do their best work for with families.
It’s at the heart of Shantona to work with communities, to work to understand each other and do great work based on trusting relationships. Therefore, our new specialist training and learning resources are based on our 3 core strands of work: domestic violence, child sexual exploitation and mental and physical health. We also facilitate training on broader diversity and inclusion topics as we know that doing your best work with families means working alongside communities.
We have developed a range of training based on our unique way of working with BAMER families. Each interactive session is aimed to boost your cultural competence, put your skills to real case studies and interrogate your own practice for your personal and professional development.
If you decide to come along to a Shantona sessions, you’ll be attending an interactive workshop which will allow you the space to think about how your practe, processes and work can be inclusive and create the best outcomes for all users.
We work with professionals to boost your cultural competence, challenge myths and strengthen practitioner’s knowledge and confidence to work effectively with South Asian communities and other communities of BAMER backgrounds.
Our next training ,‘Culturally Informed Best Practice: Working with South-Asian families and CSE’, is on the 28th Feb. You can book on here, and we look forward to sharing our learning with you.
