  • We recently received training from mawsafeguarding on Challenging Behaviour and Restraint Training. Milly was a first class trainer. Throughout the course she was knowledable-particularly in regard to the law, friendly, a good communicator and made us all feel at ease to share real life experiences that bought the formal training to life. Milly has a calm approach based on her own real life experiences, which, where possible, she was able to share. Milly also offered real world solutions to our real life problems and situations which put us all at ease. The focus was definitely about conflict resolution but we were given simple techniques and protocols to follow should a situation escalate. Milly’s communication during the planning and subsequent follow up discussions has been second to non. Thank you Milly-I  cannot recommend her or her company enough. (Dominic Barnes - Fairplay House Outdoor Education Centre)

  • Myself and my staff are finding your style of training amazing. Big thank you to our trainer and safeguarding officer  Milly Wright-Wildish for a great weekend of training for all our dedicatied team at Serenity Welfare.  Truly an amazing professional approach. Thank you Milly for a very constructive professional training day - (Emily Aklan - CEO Serenity Welfare)

  • This is just a quick message to let you know that the buzz amongst the staff after your sessions was palpable with many requests for ' more please!'. I am sure I will be hoping to book you again for training and for work with students  (Andrea Harvey - Head of Pastoral Care for St Angelas Ursuline School Newham)
