The end is only the beginning.......

Our confidence and self-esteem course has finished today in Calne. However, this is just the beginning for this group! Even by the mid-way point of the course, volunteers were supporting each other outside of the course by meeting up and texting/phoning.

Friendships have been formed and support networks created. It was very fortunate that half the group already knew each other from another regular group. This is something to reflect upon for us planning the courses. I guess it could work both ways, either helping or hindering the new group. The group did find the surveys a chore to complete, especially the progression questions in survey 4 and 5. This is something we are now reviewing to see if we can find a way to make this data gathering more, if not enjoyable, then at least not confusing.

The group quickly became a safe place to explore and learn together, all with the support of our brilliant tutor, Angie Aplin. Angie took some photos from today's session which we will share amongst staff.
