Training

TFSW have an established reputation and many years’ experience providing training across the refugee and asylum seeker sector in the South West. We are now rolling out a national programme of training which will be available online for both teams and individuals.  

All funds raised from our training support our free counselling and psychotherapy for traumatised refugees.    

Training sessions are all available in person or online, bespoke for your team or to join as part of our nationally available online programme.

Examples of past bespoke sessions include:

  • end of life care for refugees and asylum seekers

  • working with refugees and asylum seekers who are suicidal

  • safeguarding when working with refugees and asylum seekers

If you are booking a session on behalf of someone else, please email tfsw@tfsw.co.uk to let us know.

Concessionary rates are available for small charities and self-employed individuals. Please complete the bespoke booking form with your charity info and we will be in touch.
