Nightingale Frontline: Facilitation Masterclass  

Support your Workforce through a Facilitator Masterclass

Do you want to be able to better support your team and colleagues with their emotional wellbeing?

Thanks to the generous funding we received during the Big Give campaign at the end of 2023, Florence Nightingale Foundation is able to offer a fully-funded practical group coaching programme to enable you to better support the psychological safety of your workforce.

Our Nightingale Frontline® service launched in April 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide a support service for nurses and midwives across the UK. At that time, our goal was to provide emotional well-being support for all nurses and midwives as they battled the unprecedented demands of the pandemic on a daily basis.

Today, nurses and midwives continue to manage the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic across health and social care, as well as ongoing challenges of seasonal pressures, staff shortages and emotional pressures that the professions can bring.

We are therefore offering this new Co-consulting Facilitator Masterclass to reach as many nurses and midwives as possible. By completing this programme you will develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to go on to facilitate supportive sessions in your own workplace, using a problem solving approach.
