Empower parents to address violence
Taste and Teach the Non ViolenResistance Approach
Empower parents to address violence
Thursday 18 November 2018 09.45 to 11.45am
Thank you for sharing concerns that some parents need help to adopt new methods at home so that children and young people use alternatives to violence.
The child’s experience at home has a great influence on their outlook and attitudes as adults.
VCS organisations are invited to nominate up to 3 members of staff or parent representative to attend the  Non Violent Resistance training introduction session.
Participants will increase understanding of how to use the trainers toolkit and deliver the non violent parent support approach to your service users. Together we will unpack the impact of smacking and support parents to apply tested alternatives approaches to raise young people that do not use violence to address problems.
The session is led by Vicky Rodrigues of ELFT,  It takes place Thursday 18 January 09.45 to 12.45 at Hackney  CVS 24 to 30 Dalston Lane E8 3AZ

Review: impacts of changes to NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations

Source By: Migrant Women's Rights Service 

The Department of Health is carrying out a review into the impacts of recent changes to the NHS (Charges to Overseas Visitors) Regulations. These changes have meant that non-exempt overseas visitors are now additionally chargeable for NHS services (excluding primary care services) when they are provided in the community, instead of just when provided at a hospital, or when they are provided by a non-NHS organisation, instead of just when provided by an NHS organisation.  

We are currently looking for providers of these newly chargeable community services to take part in this review. If you would like to contribute, or to find out more information, please contact (0113 254 5760).
