“I attended training yesterday at the Marriot Centre which was led by TD Consultancy. I was exceptionally impressed with what the trainer delivered and how – they gave history, science, practice issues, … they brought the drug and the user/worker alive. I chatted with others on the course and they all felt the same as me – they felt that they had really learnt and that the knowledge they had would help immensely in their practice.” Deborah Gihawi MSc, PGDEd, BSc (Hons) DipSW, YMCA Central, NORWICH
