Positive Practice Partnership - Developing Excellence in Family Recovery

What customers say about CRAFT, ACRA and Positive Practice

Welcome, please take a look around...

A huge thank you for the uplifting and inspirational two days’ CRAFT training.  George's passion, knowledge and commitment were second to none and the training complemented our Relatives and Friends Together (RAFT) programme work really well, providing more tools and structure.

The group dynamics worked and you held us together with humour and patience. There was a buzz in the air and we are looking forward to rolling our sleeves up and getting stuck in.

Both the materials and you were excellent

Alison Scott, Deputy Manager, Derbyshire Alcohol Advice Service


The course was excellent. I really appreciated spending time with Helen, a course leader who is so committed, knowledgeable and who has a gentle teaching style.

I learnt a great deal and was given much food for thought about delivering ACRA. I’m looking forward to continued dialogue and training.

Steve Wicks, Psychologist, Beacon, Stockholm


CRAFT is up and running with positive feedback.

Stewart Atkinson, Joint Commissioning Manager, North Lincolnshire Substance Misuse Team 


Thank you for the presentation and for the training. I don’t think I’ve ever learned so much whilst having such a good time. I am really excited about what I’ve learned and can’t wait to try it. I am talking to a group of carers about it.

My colleagues and I really enjoyed the course and are certainly planning to use ACRA.
