Managing Director Rachael Parry-Jones said:
We’re delighted to announce our partnership with Standing Tall Foundation, who promote the mental and physical health of all community groups. Empowering those who are in need of support, we share a belief in their values and look forward to working with the foundation.
We are really excited to be working together moving forward, and warmly welcome them into our Foundation partner stable!
Our Mental Health and Addiction support Counsellors Phil and Chris attended a Veterans Crisis Training day last week at GMP Sedgely Park Training Centre.
Facilitated by the UK Hostage and Crisis Negotation Team, the theme was suicide prevention and focused on improving their communication skills in order to resolve a crisis situation.
Learning included verbal deescalation, active listening skills and empathetic communication. The training was really enjoyable and helpful in terms of offering an alternative means of communication.
A really interesting and insightful day was had by all, thanks to everyone involved.
SAVE THE DATE!
We are delighted to announce that following the success of our very first Gala Dinner and Awards last year, and the incredible support we received from all our Foundation Partners and friends, we are going to host another one!
This will be held on Saturday 23rd September at the spectacular Concorde Conference Centre, Manchester.
There will be an awards ceremony once again to celebrate our partners and the support you have all shown, a fantastic 3 course dinner, auction, entertainment, guest speakers, performers and even a special celebrity guest!
There are also opportunities to sponsor the awards categories or the event in general, please let us know if this is something that might be of interest.
Here is a reminder of last year’s categories, winners and photos from the night:
So please get the date in your diaries ASAP and we really hope to see you all again this year! More details to follow in due course.
