Our client organisations increasingly work in traumatic contexts and we have recently provided medical and psychosocial support and training in high security countries such as Turkey/Syria, South Sudan, Central African Republic, Somalia and Afghanistan. We work in country with both international and national staff, and aim to prepare people for assignments, support individuals and teams in situ and provide good aftercare at the end of an assignment or after critical incident. We also provide occupational health care to some 125 charitable organisations across the UK, including churches and dioceses.

London, UK
