We were proud to launch our new apprenticeship programme a couple of weeks ago, helping young people to receive the training and experience they need to forge a successful career in the care sector. This week we recruited our first apprentice into our Woolston Road Service and we are looking forward to welcoming many more
Our staff are committed to helping the people they support to develop their independence and to do the things they love to do. Don't take our word for it though...here's what some of our staff and people we support in Somerset had to say.
Laura Jordan, our Head of Legal, stepped away from her usual working day and joined our team in Burton as a Support Worker for a week. Find out how she got on here: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ1kA
This week is Brain Injury Awareness Week and John, one of the people we support, tells us his story...
After joining the army in 2009, John was deployed to Afghanistan to serve his country. John was relieving a fellow soldier who had been on duty on a compound roof when his life changed forever.
“I was literally on the roof for no more than 10 seconds when I was shot through my head and right eye,” explained John, a father-of-two.
After years of rehabilitation at one of our brain injury rehab services in Nuneaton, John has finally been able to take the big step and move into his own flat!
