Winning Team: The Lodge - North East Supported Living Team
This team has worked through difficulties and challenges and grown in confidence as a team; working together sharing knowledge, experience and skills. Each team member knows the others’ strengths and weaknesses and they pull together to support one another. They have worked together to develop goal plans, learning materials and achieve outcomes for the tenants at The Lodge and tenants have achieved their goals and developed new skills.
One of the tenants said: “I have been living here for nearly a year and I love it! I am able to learn new things and be myself – I have my own independence”.
Their family carer commented: “I have seen huge progression for my son and he is now ready to move on. I myself have received support from the team at the Lodge – the staff are amazing!”
