On Wednesday 20th June our trusty volunteer Ray and myself put up our display in Ponds Forge to launch our day service on the farm for adults with learning disabilities. All of the other organistations who provide services or support in and around Sheffield were there.
There was lots of interest in us and some people seemed excited at finding a new project that they didn’t know. Two or three people said their services were near to capacity and it would be good to be able to refer people to us as an alternative. I have to say, our display looked really nice and I was pleased that I decided to keep text to a minimum and not let it get too crowded. It had the desired impact. All we need now are some enquiries!
We are also looking for Volunteer Supporters who can commit to working one day a week. You would be working with one other person, probably me, the Development Worker, to support a maximum of 3 adults. It would involve gardening jobs, looking after poultry, cooking together and crafts. You would also need to have a CRB. (criminal records bureau) check before starting that we would arrange. Please get in touch with Barbara for more information if interested.
