Trauma-informed approaches

The mental health team at Health Innovation Oxford and Thames Valley were commissioned in 2023 to conduct independent evaluations of activities within the trauma-informed programme delivered by the Surrey and Northeast Hampshire trauma-informed team.

About the team

The programme offered is currently the main provider supporting staff and organisations across Surrey and NE Hampshire in their transformation to be trauma-informed via training and consultation. The team also run a co-produced trauma-informed training course for people living in Surrey and NE Hampshire via the local Recovery College.


Trauma-Informed Surrey and NE Hampshire drive trauma-informed system-wide change through co-produced training and consultation, using a framework founded on evidence based, globally recognised key principles. The service strives to support organisations and communities to develop trauma aware and responsive services and workplaces. Leading to improved relational experiences and better physical health, mental health, and social outcomes for all people across Surrey and NE Hampshire.
