Our values set the tone for our everyday work life, we ensure our values are an essential and natural part of the Trust across throughout our words and actions. This is also true for the many additional activities we hold such as fundraising for nominated charities, regular events such as bakes and book sales.
Our Giving Something Back group regularly organise events for colleagues such as - virtual duck races, well-being walks, lunchtime quizzes, to name a few. Our new Charity of the Year 2022 is Young Minds. We previously raised money for MacMillan Cancer Support, raising over £26,000.
Young Minds provide young people with tools to look after their mental health. Their website is full of advice and information on what to do if you're struggling with how you feel. They empower parents and adults who work with young people, to be the best support they can be to the young people in their lives. They give young people the space and confidence to get their voices heard and change the world we live in. Together, we can create a world where no young person feels alone with their mental health.
We also organise various sporting team matches, lunch and learn sessions and use ColourWorks Profiling to really get to know each other and how to work best together.
