In 2009, Peter and his wife Jo took the bold decision to set up a new business that would provide training services to organisations who deliver social care services in England. For the past decade, Strengthening Practice has developed and presented training for thousands of social workers and other people who work with children and their families across the country. An important aspect of Strengthening Practice's offering are the textbooks, training workbooks and tools that have been developed by the team at Strengthening Practice to support social care practitioners in the field.
As Strengthening Practice has continued to grow, so has the demand for our materials and workbooks, to the extent that we now have our own permanent design and print production team. It was therefore a natural step to create an imprint - Elterwater Press - as a vehicle to publish our non-fiction, and most recently fiction, titles.
Peter's role in Elterwater Press is Creative Director. He is responsible for overseeing the design and production team and takes overall responsibility for Elterwater's output.
Peter is also an author himself, and is currently writing the second and third books in his Wolves of Dumnonia historical adventure series for young adults. You can read his author bio here.
