Inspiring practitioners to inspire others

Soma specialise in working with individuals and organisations that support people with complex needs:

  • Problematic drug or alcohol use
  • Offending behaviour
  • Mental health issues
  • Learning disabilities or autism

We believe that we can help you to make that support even better! 

We will achieve this by working with you to

  • Identify individual and organisational strengths
  • Develop the skill base of practitioners and front-line staff
  • Evaluate the processes and resources employed by your organisation
  • Improve the outcomes of the services and interventions that you provide
