Here are a few of the comments from staff about the day  :

  • The talk on domestic abuse – personal stories were very powerful
  • The agenda was informative and interactive with a good mix of external speakers, internal speakers and group discussion.
  • Domestic abuse – thought provoking.  Young Carers – inspiring.
  • Good atmosphere and good to have everyone in the same room.
  • Its always good – something different learnt each time.
  • “Being my first conference with YSS I was excited to meet our extended team and learn more about our work as a charity. I was not disappointed and left with a great sense of pride”


These are  always very popular events and  its a great way to met colleagues from other projects, hear about their work and share  ideas.  Volunteers  Sherry and Peter Brown   joined the conference too; Peter was  called out as a YSS  Appropriate Adult Volunteer that very afternoon so had to leave the conference early to do an acting at Worcester police station!
