Whilst attending the sessions, you must ensure that you comply with the below ground rules:

  • Be respectful to others always – we are all different and it’s important we are heard. Try not to interrupt or speak over anyone – it often takes great courage to contribute, so it is important we create a space to listen and speak one at a time; allowing everyone to contribute and for their contribution to be valued.
  • Be mindful of the language and terms we use; avoiding referring to groups or individuals in a way that could be deemed offensive.
  • Do not make assumptions, judgements or statements about others – everyone has experiences that are very different, so empathy and compassion are important.
  • It is very important that we all respect confidentiality as it is essential that people can speak confidently and safely.
  • Ensure you are in a confidential environment free of distractions when attending the sessions to ensure the group’s safety. You are not permitted to take screenshots, photos or make any recordings at any time during sessions.
  • Please be careful not to share personal information during sessions. This is to keep you safe as well.
  • Please set your phones to silent or switch off during sessions.
