This is the first blog from Keith Burley (Founder and CEO) for some time, but it is the first of a regular short blog that I hope to write every Monday.
It will contain my musings on many things related to the children, young people and young adults we care for in Phoenix.
I wanted to use this first blog to remind everyone of the People and Organisational Development Strategy 2015/2016 document which we launched recently. This is an important document as it is written as a result of what you as Colleagues said you wanted to see Phoenix do better.
It contains a number of action points that your senior Colleagues take very seriously, and will work hard to achieve during this next year.
Have a read of it and let me know what you think!
The summer edition of ‘Who Cares?’ the magazine for children and young people in care, has comments from several young people living in Phoenix children’s homes. In the section called ‘you speak out’ they talk about who they turn to for support Who Cares Phoenix Article. This came about whilst they visited the offices of The Who Care Trust during a visit to London, organised during the Take Over Day, which saw the young people ‘take over’ head office for the day!
Finally just a quick reminder to get your nominations in for the Phoenix Annual Colleagues awards, the closing date is 24th July 2015.
