Good morning all,

I hope that you have had a good week so far. Last week I informed you that Leah was leaving us, this week, some good news. Melissa Abrahams will be joining the team, and taking over Amber’s role as Support Worker. Melissa will be officially joining the team from September 1st, but some of you might meet her this week during her induction.

Happy Tuesday
