Finalist for Best Educational Programme for the NHS HSJ Partnership Awards 2023

About the course

Essentials in Communication and Co-production with Parents/Carers is an inspiring, interactive and unique 4-hour virtual (or 6/7 hour in-person), CPD-certified training founded on lived experience, research and best practice. It aims to equip practitioners to effectively communicate and work in collaboration with parent/carers of children/adults who have disabilities.

When time and resources are limited, maximising interactions with family/carers is essential in an age where co-production, personalised care and understanding lived experience are at the heart of delivering good services. This Born at the Right Time training course is hosted by Director/Founder Rachel Wright and aimed at anyone working in health, SEND or social care, whether a registered or non-registered practitioner.


  • Current context for families and practitioners
  • What is going on underneath the surface
  • Next steps to creating meaningful change
