“We are a small organisation and training budgets are usually small, we want to empower out staff to gain the skills to continue the support that they provide to our residents. The added training will ensure that all staff have the knowledge and skills to carry out their roles in the best possible way for the residents so that they are able to work with a person centred approach giving autonomy to the residents. We pride ourselves in offering the best opportunities to the residents to gain support to improve their future and we aim to provide the same for the staff. Brunel will give us the opportunity to do this in the best possible way”.
