Behind our training programmes, interventions and resources is a team with first-hand experience working in child protection and managing frontline workers.
Our programmes have purpose because we recognise the problems and we understand what needs to change. As a result, we focus on complex cases that require specialist understanding and skills that, to our knowledge, are not available on a degree course or other traditional offers.
Our programme puts children centre-stage because we ask the question: How does this help protect children and promote their rights? We emphasise the importance of acknowledging children’s lived experiences, and so we devise tools and strategies for inclusion in our programmes.
We know from feedback that when participants complete our training programme, they leave enlightened. They return to their career more knowledgeable, skilled and confident to make a difference in the lives of children and families.
What Gets Measured Gets Done!
We are passionate about outcomes. An evidence-based approach is the only way to prove that our learning and development opportunities yield results. When working with clients, we use the Theory of Change, Logic Model approach to measure the effectiveness of the learning opportunity.
We guide clients through the process to ensure they achieve the outcome they envisaged. This helps to measure the impact of our programmes on both participants and clients, and to evaluate the effectiveness of service provision.
The truth is that families are diverse and require diverse solutions. Mayday will continue responding to real challenges on the frontline, helping to protect more children from harm.
