Ahead of Trustees’ Week…….

Trustees’ Week is 1st -5th November 2021; this is an annual event to showcase the great work trustees do, to celebrate our boards and to provide opportunities for everyone to get involved and make a difference. There are 250,000 trustees across the country who help shape and guide voluntary sector organisations by playing a vital role, by volunteering precious time and by working together to make important decisions about an organisation’s work. Trustees’ Week is about celebrating their passion and commitment; it's also an opportunity to encourage new people to consider trusteeship. We support Trustees' Week, & would like to pass on our sincerest thanks to our lovely trustees - Georgie, Nick, Caroline, Janice, Rowland & Lucy - for all they do to support us at The Magdalene Group. Thank you is never enough.

This really struck a chord with us .......... Elizabeth wrote this poem, part of her new collection, for all those who suffered childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, trauma, unwanted harassment and attention, put in a position of vulnerability, domestic violence and situations where they were never given a choice to say no. She has given her permission to share it with you :

Welcome….

....to Beth McKay, who joins us on Monday, as Women's Inclusion Practitioner, within our adult service. We look forward to working with her.
