It was so lovely to visit the Avenues team in Sidcup last month, where I had the opportunity to tell Service Managers about the various staff support offers available to their team. This included the individual support available through the Keeping Well website and the reflective space sessions, including Professional Tree of Life workshops and Schwartz Rounds, on offer to the teams.
The Avenues team offer support to people with a learning disability and/or complex mental health conditions and it was heartening to hear how they navigated the last couple of years following the onset of the pandemic.
Very exciting to be returning to the team in November to offer the first of our many Professional Tree of Life Workshops with the team
This is lovely to see both the work and the happy faces in the picture. Appreciate the sharing!
Welcome to the community @Claire!
That picture just shows what a warm and great visit you had with such an inspirational team! So much dedication over COVID.
Just fantastic to hear about the work you are doing.
Continuing our travels yesterday, this time to the beautiful Antokol care home in Chiselhurst. Izabela spoke about the enormous challenges they faced early on with Covid and later on when mandatory vaccination was introduced.
Everyone was so welcoming and I look forward to returning with the Keeping Well team at the end of the year to begin our Professional Tree of Life workshops.
Thanks, @Claire - what a great photo. The setting looks magnificent too!
Lovely to speak with Jackie yesterday at Beechmore Court care home. So much hard work happening already to support staff well-being in the care home, although unsurprisingly the current economic challenges remain on everyone’s minds!
Happy to share some of the great deals/offers that the Community have identified here.
Looking forward to returning in early 2023 to facilitate one of our workshops!
Sounds great @Claire! Which workshop are you running? Professional Tree of Life Workshop?
Yep…we’re fully booked now for 2022 but keen to reach out to as many as possible in the next few weeks before the first few months of 2023 get booked!
So heartening to see how motivated managers are to access support for their teams
That’s fantastic to hear @Claire!
It’s such a great way for people to get support.
Great to see @Claire - well done!
