Team Meeting

Posted 14th April 2018
Our Service team have been in and very busy today, our team meeting, programme planning and training to mention just a few!
Wonderful to see much of the team back after our Easter break, a chance to reflect on last term and the many events and prepare for this long Summer term with lots of exciting things ahead….
Thank you to Sarah Vines Head of QEF mobility services who came and presented an overview of their services which include some interesting things such as a plane fuselage for establishing travel needs!
Our Hyacinth led a Cognition and Language training session which was packed with useful information and insight, Nancy our new assistant at Kingston commented that she has learnt “aphasia is deeper than language” and went on to say she’ll be taking her new knowledge forward and looks forward to Tuesday morning!

High Ashurst

Posted 5th April 2018
Yesterday was a day for our Parents and Children – family support is one of our highest priorities but the children of our members are often hard to reach. Our programme co-ordinator, Suzanne with a generous contribution from Mole Valley’s accessible sports fund was able to put this right by providing a day at outdoor adventure centre, High Ashurst for both our Members who are parents and their Children – a chance for the Children to share an enjoyable fun day with mum or dad as well as meet other children who are also living with the impact of aphasia and the life changes it brings to them and their families.

Despite the poor weather Suzanne summed the day up by saying “It was such a great day with this lot….Members were adventurous, supportive and inspirational to each other…..New friendships were made today”

Easter Art

Posted 29th March 2018

Enjoyable sessions have been had by all, these past couple of days with Art sessions at both Kingston and Leatherhead – Cherry Blossom trees were the theme. One new member described the session as ‘Relaxing…I was surprised’ when asked if she has done any Art before she replied ‘no never, I wouldn’t have known what to do – I really enjoyed this and am excited to take home my finished piece – I will definitely do this again’
