Dr Barry Duncan- the co-designer of PCOMS and Director at Partnering for Outcomes Foundation Aotearoa visited New Zealand in April to run a PCOMS workshop in Napier for Wairoa Youth Services Trust, Dove Hawkes Bay and Te Ikaroa Social Services. Following that workshop Barry ran a Train the Trainers Workshop- where participants are immersed in PCOMS and begin the process of becoming accredited trainers for the Heart and Soul of Change, for two staff from Wairoa Youth Services. This was organised by Mark Oberon- Chair of Wairoa Youth Services Trust and Director at Exess Connectivity.
Makerita Makapelu, from Wesley Community Action supported Barry at the Train the Trainers, providing a New Zealand lens and insights from a providers experience. Its wonderful to see more organisations investing in being client led and data rich.
