bespoke training programmes delivered by Nick Barwick Insight Wellbeing Services


Insight Wellbeing offers bespoke training programmes to fostering and adoption services all about the experiences of children navigating their way through the care system. 

Nick was placed in the care system at the age of 13 and experienced much positivity but many negatives along the way unfortunately. 

All of this experience enabled Nick to provide a training which was designed to take participants on a journey of what it was like growing up in the care system. 

This has now grown, and Insight Wellbeing offer several trainers (all who have been in the care system ) who are able to offer training from their perspectives of growing up in the care system and the challenges this caused them. These trainings are real, emotive and are delivered by experts who have lived experience of growing up in care. 

Although the lived experience trainings are the most popular amongst clients, we do offer several others:
