Roll on Monday ….

Posted 15th April 2016

Our termly team meeting enables the whole Dyscover staff and volunteer team to gather for a briefing on the summer term’s plans and activities. This is followed by meetings of each group team together with their

Speech and Language Therapist  where the term’s programme is discussed and finalised. The day  finished with a training session from our specialist counsellor Claudia Jenner, who led our volunteers through a workshop focussed on developing their reflective listening skills. Volunteers were very positive about the experience, and look forward to using these skills in their conversations with our members.
