Celebrating research with Nottingham Trent University: Trauma Informed Care

A celebration event took place on Thursday 16th November to commemorate the research projects by Nottingham Trent University (NTU) students.

NCHA were there to congratulate Jessica White and Sakya Naz on their research, conducted at Umuada, one of our projects supporting survivors of domestic abuse.

The event took place at The Old Library in the NTU Newton Building. Students were given the opportunity to share their research and were presented with a certificate from the Trent Institute for Learning and Teaching.

Donna Sadler, NCHA Care and Support Project Manager for Umuada explains: “We were happy and eager to be involved in the project with NTU. We have gained some valued insight into how supporting in a trauma informed way is helping to improve the lives of survivors of domestic abuse.”

During their placement, Jessica and Sakya undertook research into how Trauma Informed Care can assist in the recovery of domestic abuse survivors. They concluded that overall, survivors at Umuada felt confident in the support provided by our staff.

Hollie Venn, NCHA Care and Support Contracts Manager, comments further: “NTU have been very supportive to NCHA in agreeing to fund this valuable research and recognise the benefits for us as an organisation and to their students in this partnership. This research assists us to evaluate how the support we provide is perceived and embed our Psychologically Informed Environment principles. Jessica and Sakya have done tremendously well and we wish them all the best. We welcome the chance to work with more NTU students in the future.”
