About the trainer

Lee Atkins is works for the Child Outcomes Research Consortium as Regional Improvement Officer for the Midlands and South West.

As Regional Officer for the Midlands and South West, Lee seeks to support organisations and services to develop their evidence based and outcome focused approach for service improvement. Lee developed his passion for this work supporting the mental health and well-being of children and young people over 12 years across voluntary and statutory sectors. This experience gave him a keen understanding of the needs of children, young people and their families and a commitment to putting them at the centre of all support for them. Lee is excited by the variety and diversity of work that takes place for children and young people and seeks to better understand, to demonstrate and to improve the effectiveness of this support.

We have a small number of tickets available for UMHAN members on a low income. Please use your own judgement here, but we would expect these places to go to members who do not have access to any separate training budget, and who are not able to work full time. This may be because of disability/health reasons, or caring responsibilities.
