Hello there

My name is Brian Donnelly and welcome to Orbis, a multi-award winning service. I offer support and guidance to help create environments where children and young people can thrive. Through a values-based approach to relationships and behaviour I build confidence, knowledge and skills to do this.

I work with schools, local authorities and organisations to impliment a consistent and informed approach to relationships and behaviour.

I offer a diverse range of services that reflect my experience leading and developing services in Scotland. I am a well known figure in anti-bullying in Scotland and across the UK having been the strategic lead for Scotland for 10 years as Director fo respectme, from 2007 till 2017.

I have a considerable amount of expertise in both Anti-Bullying and in helping adults develop and implement approaches to challenging and distressing behaviour. My background in residential child care underpins my approach to relationships and behaviour.

I have been involved at a Service, Policy and Strategic level in relation to Children and Young People’s Mental Health for many years. My work is driven by a sound working knowledge of Equality and Diversity and how this impacts practice and policy at a local and national level.

I work with individual schools and organisations across the country to support practice and policy development with children, parents and carers, and professionals. I offer bespoke packages of support that reflect your needs and priorities.

I am leading on innovative work with football coaches on developing and reframing their role as practitioners that work with children.

I have already helped many schools consult and engage with stakeholders and develop new policies that reflect the views and experiences of the school community. I deliver workshops to pupils, engage with and train parents, grandparents and carers as well as offer very popular CPD to staff.

I support local authorities and organisations to develop policy. I have engaged with parents and communities on a number of issues and delivered analysis and recommendations to local authorities.

I have developed and devised training and policy on workplace bullying and have supported individuals and advised organisations where this has been an issue or an allegation.

I offer training, CPD events, Policy development and tailored consultancy services in the following areas:

  • Anti-Bullying – direct work with children and young people as well as parents and professionals
  • Behaviour Management and Trauma-Informed approaches
  • Managing challenging and distressing behaviour – Trauma informed approaches and skills as well as policy development
  • Policy Development and Review – Including Equality and Diversity Impact Assessments
  • Parental Engagement
  • Equality and Diversity – both form a training and a policy and procedure development perspective
  • Public Speaking and Conference Chair
  • Workplace bullying – skills development, improving practice and policy development
  • Children and Young People’s Mental Health
  • Online Safety – for adults and young people
  • Children’s Rights

I am flexible and skilled and can tailor a package to meet your needs. I am happy to discuss this further with you and look forward to working with you.
