– We hosted our monthly Foster Carer Training, the topic was Mental Health and raising awareness.

– Angela from YMCA came into the office at the end of the training event on Thursday 27th September to meet, and talk to carers that wanted to know about the Headstart Project which provides support with emotional wellbeing and resilience for 10-16 year olds and their parents/carers.  Grab a leaflet from the Social Work room.
(YMCA are working in the community in area B (Springfield, Heath Town, Park Village, Old Heath and Eastfield) and area D (All Saints, Blakenhall, Parkfields and Ettingshall).  They provide free activities after school for 10-16 year olds and daytime sessions for parents of 10-16 year olds).
