I’ve worked with Terry and Team Oakwood on multiple projects. It’s a sad fact that the violence and aggression is on the rise in the retail sector and AS Watson wanted to be proactive and give our colleagues the knowledge and tools to defuse a potentially intense situation that could put our teams, colleagues or visitors at risk.

The feedback’s been incredible, fun and engaging. Our retail colleagues are telling us it helps to build their confidence. I highly recommend Team Oakwood – An innovative training provider that works towards tailoring their solution to your business.

The best thing about working with Oakwood was their collaborative approach. They understood our needs from MHFA training through to Leading & Managing Wellbeing, as well as short immersive webinar sessions on looking after ourselves in Lockdown and bouncing back to reopening.

Our work with Oakwood gave us permission to discuss mental health at the leadership level and has changed the way our managers think about their team's wellbeing.

We've been able to measure the impact of these changes through our Lockdown 3.0 Engagement Survey and our annual survey.

We have worked with Oakwood Training for the past five years. Terry’s knowledge has been invaluable in designing courses and operational procedures that help us reduce risks to our staff. I consistently hear great comments from staff who have attended courses and I enjoy working with Terry on the different approaches we need for our diverse range of services.

Oakwood have helped Next to embark upon their journey to improve the way those who experience mental ill-health are recognised, heard and helped. From the development of corporate objectives and a Mental Wellbeing Charter to the creation and delivery of a comprehensive training programme and procedures, Oakwood have been incredibly supportive at every stage.

Terry and the team at Oakwood have been great to work with. Not only did they take time to understand who we are and our needs as a business, they have helped us work around the challenges we faced to help us bring our health and wellbeing strategy to life and implement Mental Health Awareness as efficiently as possible.

We know that Colleagues are talking more about mental health, which helps to break down barriers and the stigma around the subject. We can see the positive impact the increased support is having. This is just the start, and we’re looking forward to working more with Oakwood in the future.

Terry is approachable and seeks to understand the ethos of the organisation to inform the training outcomes. Terry assisted us to revise an organisational policy in regards to Personal Safety in the Workplace, including Risk Assessments incorporating legislation such as HSE, good practice such as Positive Behavioural Support model and supporting us to modify our approach and develop a more robust risk assessment process.

We have been working with Oakwood since 2019 when they trained our Mental Health First Aiders. Royal Voluntary Service is delivering the NHS Volunteer Responders Programme in relation to COVID-19 and Oakwood have developed bespoke courses for us that have been delivered through live trainer-led virtual sessions.

These have included awareness programs on safe suicide conversations, self-care and group reflective practice. They have also provided one to one wellbeing support calls for members of our team. The virtual courses and support calls have been tailored to meet our specific needs and have been extremely well received by our team.

It's made a real difference in bringing groups together to talk about real-world examples so they can reflect on what they did and improve learning. It's also really helped build people's personal resilience during these difficult and challenging times. Oakwood have been very helpful and supportive and it's been a pleasure working with Gemma, Terry and the rest of the team.
