We are pleased to announce that the latest winner of our Community Grant was the Exmouth and District Community Transport Group!
We were inspired by the Charity’s link up with the Exmouth Dementia Carers Support Group. It is exactly the type of project we were looking to support – one that shares our understanding of how important ‘taking care of the carer’ is, especially for people caring for a loved one with Dementia.

During June we took time out to celebrate, recognise and give thanks to our fab staff for their achievements and service milestones.
We invited our Care Assistants and office staff who had passed their probation period or a service milestone to presentation afternoons.
Everyone enjoyed cakes and sandwiches and took advantage of the opportunity to socialise and celebrate such a positive thing with their colleagues.

On Thursday 26th May we were privileged to have guest speakers for our Team Meeting - the Exeter Aphasia Support Group. Barbara, Sandhy and Lisa gave an inspiring talk on living with Aphasia.
Aphasia is most commonly caused by stroke and can change for ever a person's ability to speak, read, write or manage numbers. It can lead to feelings of isolation, a loss of confidence and withdrawal from everyday life.
The inspirational Sandhy who, in 2014 suffered a brain aneurysm and shortly after a stroke, talked to us about her experiences of living with Aphasia. She told us about her frustrations and difficulties but spoke passionately about how much of a difference attending the Exeter Aphasia Support Group and working with a Speech Therapist has made.
