TouchStone, founded by Jude and Mel, is dedicated to supporting those on their journey of healing and growth amidst family harm. With a vision to help individuals become their best selves, our training program 'Training that retuns you to your why' aims to equip professionals and practitioners with the tools, knowledge and education needed to provide support and create positive change. Born from the moemoeā of Mel and Jude, our training sessions promote personal development growth, empowering participants to embrace their true potential.
At TouchStone, we believe in incorporating lived experience with training skills, knowledge, and expertise to deliver a unique and transformative learning experience. Our interactive training approach connects with participants on a deeper level, presenting information with emotion to create lasting impact.
We are committed to delivering training aligned with Te Aorerekura principles, fostering skilled, culturally competent, and sustainable workforces. By prioritising equity, inclusion, aroha, tika, pono, kotahitanga, and kaitiakitanga, we support organisations in achieving their strategic outcomes.
TouchStone training objectives echo the voices of victim-survivors and people using violence; to be heard without judgement, protection not investigation and to be supported with genuine kindness.
We are open to including additional sessions from an operational and staff management perspective that can benefit your organisation. Feel free to reach out to us to discuss your specific needs.
