Public interest in services is at an all time high, and services are required to reach out to the public to provide the best possible services.  Being open to scrutiny and challenge is an essential part of building public trust.

We provide support to councils and councillors which helps to create robust governance, leading to better assurance that services are effective in delivering public need. In particular we provide training and support on the following vital areas:


  • Safeguarding children: effective scrutiny and challenge

  • Practical Corporate Parenting and championing the child

  • Developing governance and assurance of Children’s Services

  • Exploring alternative delivery models for Children’s Services, and how to scrutinise them;

  • Patient and public involvement 

  • Local leadership in children’s mental health services


Coaching and mentoring helps individuals to unlock their potential. We love to use peoples insight to make an impact - after all that's our brand.

What others say...

"Su was recommended to work with us following an Ofsted inspection which resulted in us being in Requires Improvement.  Su coached me individually, and also led group workshops reviewing our governing board in depth; assisting with creating and working through our action plan.

At the next Ofsted inspection the outcome was Good … and the work that Su had done with us was noted in the inspection report, demonstrating the impact of Su’s work"
