Tuned In Consulting works predominately with the health, community and welfare sector to improve practice and ensure high quality services. We believe that the sector as a whole, and the individuals who work within it, do so because of a desire to achieve excellent outcomes for the community members they serve.
As a company we believe we should be ‘tuned in’ to the needs of our clients (the workers and services), their clients (the wider community) and also current research and literature, both in a clinical and also management context.
We work with a range of Government and non-government services, in Australia and the UK to improve their provision and continuously improve practice and skills. We carefully consider the work we undertake, and the agencies and individuals with whom we partner.
Engage organisations and individuals in the process of continuous professional improvement.
Work to improve understanding and application of the evidence base within the sector and its implications for service provision.
Use constructive clinical supervision and personalised management coaching to develop individuals and service delivery. We believe that in order to offer high quality, professional services, workers and managers both need and deserve excellent mentoring and coaching.
Through tailored strategic planning days, service reviews and evaluations we aim to cultivate and improve organisations’ practice and service delivery.
Design specialist, tailored curriculum and training that grows and challenges individuals and the sector.
We have a commitment to high quality, innovative and professional practice, working for those who are often the most disadvantaged in the community. This is core to the beliefs of the company. We believe those working in the sector should be challenged to regularly assess the ‘fit’ of their approaches, be assisted to be innovative and effective in their practice, and have the maximum positive impact, while providing value for money. The clients / consumers / customers they serve deserve no less.
