Good Morning,

I am the Director of Delivery for Leap Confronting Conflict and am writing to share with you an opportunity to become programme partners for phase two of our young people in care programme.

For the past two years, we have designed and developed a conflict management programme to support young people in care and their carers to manage conflict effectively and to give them the tools to build safe, supportive and stable relationships. During this time, the programme has evolved, and several partnerships established with residential care home providers, foster care agencies, local authorities, social workers, young people and care leavers from across Cambridge, Devon, East Anglia, Somerset and London. You can read the Interim Evaluation 2019 Report from the Tavistock Institute.

I am contacting you today, as we are now wanting to extend an invitation to other local authorities to join us in the second phase of the programme. We would work with you to co-produce the programme so that it is suited to your context and the needs of your beneficiaries.

Please do email my colleague and Programme Manager, katie.potter@leapcc.org.uk, to understand more about our approach and different delivery approaches within either a foster care or residential care home context.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Sam Matthews

Director for Delivery

In May 2020, we delivered online conflict sessions to staff and young people at Break and foster carers living in Greenwich and Somerset. Click to read a summary of how we've translated face-to-face delivery online. Leap Confronting Conflict Care Overview_May2020.pdf
