Support to practitioners & police

MCF provides mentoring and practice supervision for frontline workers and managers in Children’s Social Care, Health Services, Education, Criminal Justice, CAFCASS and the Voluntary Sector. We provide a range of mentoring and coaching designed to assist professionals working with child victims.

Practice supervision

We also undertake practice supervision where individuals can gain expert feedback on their practice and support on specific issues. We undertake a wide range of seminars, workshops and conferences for a variety of agencies, organisations and businesses designed to promote sharing and learning. In this way we will seek to underpin and promote good practice locally, nationally and internationally.

“It is comforting to see that the Marie Collins Foundation is trying to address the issues of children harmed online and enabling front line practitioners to conduct work with children that is based on relevant research. I will be a regular visitor to the website and will be advertising the charity in the workshops I facilitate.”
