What we offer – children’s services


Acumina is passionately committed to the provision of services that help practitioners and managers
enhance outcomes for children and families.

All our services – training, consultancy, writing – are heavily informed by our belief in peoples’ capacity to change and the critical role of children’s services in supporting and facilitating that change.

Our materials are all creative, evidence-based, customised to the needs of individual clients, and engaging and accessible.



They include training programmes and consultancy relating to a broad range of relevant issues and topics, including:-


Engaging with challenging and challenged young people

Dealing with conflict

Induction training

Working with young people involved in criminal or anti-social behaviour

Youth justice training and consultancy – all areas, including work with parents, effective practice, managing risk

Work with volunteers, including youth offending panel members

Restorative approaches – including restorative justice, restorative management, work with victims

Work with parents


We also offer a wide range of services relating to areas other than children’s services.
