Consultancy

Strategic Support

The Arden Centre team are well qualified and experienced having held a range of senior leadership appointments across sectors. We combine both academic and applied knowledge of managing large scale, national change and development programmes. 

We can offer a range of consultancy services either as standalone interventions or as a programme to develop your leaders, managers and staff. We can support you to explore difficult workplace behaviours; develop your staff teams to manage their caseload/work demands more effectively and coach and grow your existing or future leaders so they demonstrate the key behaviours needed for successful leadership.

We work from a strength based and resilience model so that even in difficult or challenging circumstances your team enjoys the stretch that they are experiencing.

Child and Family assessments

Our team offers a range of parenting assessments and interventions including capacity to change; willingness to commit to long term change and statutory parenting assessments to inform care proceedings. We adopt a strength based and resilience model aiming to work with parents to be aware of their overall parenting capacity and ways in which they can work to improve regardless of outcome. We are aiming to support parents to identify gaps in their skills in order to reach a standard of ‘good enough’ parenting and therefore reducing the cycle of poor parenting leading to looked after proceedings.
