During these difficult times our dedicated teams are working around the clock to continue looking after our young people. To facilitate social distancing, our office based support staff will be working from home wherever possible and can be contacted using the numbers on our Contact Us page. We are still reviewing all referrals, offering placements where relevant, and planning for young people to move into our homes where it is safe to do so. Despite the challenges we all face during these testing times, we are committed to supporting you and our young people.
Today is World Social Worker Day on which the efforts, dedication and commitment shown by social workers all over the world are recognised.
The vast majority of our young people take part in extra-curricular activities for the enrichment of skills, enjoyment and well-being.
Yesterday evening our young people celebrated Shrove Tuesday with some delicious pancakes topped with healthy fruit. Our staff took the opportunity to open a discussion about the meaning behind the celebration and how it marks the start of Lent. Everyone had an enjoyable evening.
