Dear Friends of Offspring, I’m sitting at home and all I can hear is the wind swirling around the house, banging windows and leaves flying everywhere. Today is the ‘code red’ fire warning day across Australia. It’s crazy (and heartbreaking) to think that a small flick of a match, or

Dear Friends of Offspring, I just cannot get enough at the moment of seeing the way our trainees are thriving! Our model of having a small group of trainees with us at one time is proving effective in its results. We are seeing change in behaviour, change in their thinking
