Venus PlayAway at Skipton

During the first weekend of June, Venus accompanied the Sefton Play Council on a residential to Yorkshire at the popular Play Away resort for the weekend.

 

We had barely made our beds on Friday night before the kids were in the outdoor heated pool swimming and the staff having a long overdue cup of tea. The resort is surrounded by acres of green fields and even has a mini farm equipped with guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens where the kids spent many happy afternoons!

 


Social Work Student Placements

So on the occasion of our latest student leaving us I thought I'd tell you a little bit about our students and how they help us deliver our services whilst we help them learn about their chosen field of study.  It's a boss mutually beneficial arrangement and it raises additional funds for us because Education Establishments like Liverpool John Moores University make a contribution to our Organisation to cover expenses and staff time.


Venus Team Day!

Today our Centre is closed while we have a Team Day.  We have team days every month to catch up on policy reviews, undertake any activities or reviews that we need to do.  We have tried to update our IT systems this morning because we're in the process of implementing a new computer case management system and trying to be more efficient!  I have to admit I'm struggling a bit because I'm not computer-y but I'm perservering!  So, if you have any suggestions or you're interested in creating a video or taking pictures or anything like that for our social media then get involved!


Catching up

Hello!

Just wanted to catch up and tell you about a few things we've been up to recently.  Clare has been using our Smiley Bus from the Morgan Foundation to take families on day trips through the Easter Holidays, last week a trip to the Safari Park went very well, this week we're looking forward to some splashy fun at Splash World in Southport!  Dawn, one of our social work students, is looking forward to donning her cozzi and getting her swim on!
