Olive Branch Training - Let's Help the Vulnerable People in Our Community

The Olive Branch Programme was initially launched in mid 2007 following the tragic fire death of Olive Simcock. One of the lessons learnt following her death was for key agencies to engage in closer partnership working to better communicate and refer vulnerable persons to the appropriate agency or organisation.

Staffordshire Fire & Rescue are committed to reducing the number of accidental dwelling fires which result in injury or death for the most vulnerable members of our communities through partnership working.

Olive Branch Training is completely FREE of charge.

Staffordshire Lifelinks Diversity in Mental Health Workshop

This workshop combines both practical learning workshops and interactive 'Art Therapy' sessions. It is designed to look at various aspects of diversity, and how this links to mental health.

Our aim is to help people to celebrate each individual's unique skills, talents, experiences and beliefs and how we can best use these to help and support each other on a daily basis.

Come and try something different, meet new people and be surprised at what you can learn!
