Xmas Crafting Keep in Touch Event (1st December 2016)

Yesterday the 1st December, we held our latest 'Keep in Touch' event. As usual this is a lovely opportunity for research volunteers to come along to have coffee and cake, have a chat with fellow volunteers and tutors and to participate in a short taster session.

This month we acted on feedback and arranged a Xmas Crafting taster session. Bev is our creative and crafting tutor. Bev has also been in limelight recently on TV and radio for her famous hamsters! Bev and our volunteers created some festive greetings cards and much merriment was had by all.

Into full time employment

Great pleasure last week at the Wirral Wellbeing Campus as we received the attached card from one of our learners. The change in him over the months that he spent with us has been pronounced - initially he could hardly lift his eyes from the ground, but gradually gained in confidence and self-esteem. Last week he told us that he had been successful at interview and was about to start a full-time job, which he said he couldn't have done without our support.
