Working at The Grange “The people I have supported have taught me so much.”
“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the opportunities that have been made available to me at the Grange. I began working at the Grange when I was at university as bank staff (over 10 years ago) in Group Living and then became the Jewellery tutor two days a week in Creative Arts and Textiles when I graduated. The Grange has always been a fantastic place to work and develop myself through learning via the training opportunities and the kind, welcoming staff all over the site. The people I have supported have taught me so much. Most of all they have taught me to be present and that something that will stay with me forever.
I also think it is worth mentioning that I have felt very safe, supported and happy at the Grange this year. The new procedures put in place to keep the people we support and the staff have been admirable. I can’t imagine how difficult to has been to run and organise. It has been fantastic to see the people we support come to the sessions and enjoy them even though there has been so much change and challenges.
I have really appreciated being able to work at the Grange this year, when I chose to leave my previous job I was unhappy in and focus on my career change of becoming a Veterinary Nurse, it was quite a challenge. I have have been encouraged and supported by this change by the positive staff and people we support and it has been really heart warming.
I have so many fun and happy memories from the Grange and I am sad to leave.”
