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.
In February we shared news of the 'Come Dine With Me' event that took place, full of excitement and anticipation on what the young people would cook.
When talking out the event Jamie and his team said,
"It sounds like you're doing some pretty amazing things! What a fantastic idea and fantastic effort the boys and yourself have made - everyone here at Jamie HQ is super impressed."
Our youngsters were excited and shocked with their gifts and were surprised to find out that Jamie had heard about their cooking...one youngster said, "this is cool!"
One of our young people was very proud and excited to be part of a winning football team this week.
Since January in young people’s meetings, one of our homes has being looking at ‘positive vibes’; this is a time when everyone writes down positive things and / or achievements they have noticed throughout the week. A blackboard is on display in the dining room, the heart of the home, and the positive vibes get put on it from the week.
The home manager said:
"the kids LOVE it- they really like seeing what positive things people think they have done".
Such a simple but effective way to remind the youngsters of the fact that positive things do not go unnoticed.
As ever our young people have been very active over the half term holiday.
