Volunteers’ Week 1st-7th June

Volunteers’ Week 1st-7th June

A time to say thanks! Volunteers' Week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. Over the years we have been supported by some wonderful volunteers & we are of course hugely grateful. It is timely that we are finally able to welcome back volunteers to join us in our work & we are currently recruiting. Do get in touch if you're interested and/or would like to attend a presentation evening on 13th June. Volunteers include trustees and it goes without saying that our lovely trustees are included in our thanks for their advice and guidance and unwavering support. Thank you!!

Substance Misuse training

An interesting & eye-opening morning, led by Tracey Hicks from Training & Assessment in Healthcare, around the fascinating subject of substance (mis)use, aiming to increase skills & confidence at recognising signs & symptoms. There were frank discussions around dependency & disassociation, as well as facilitated conversations linked to the team's knowledge & current experiences. Very useful, & much to take forward.
