We have just celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Richardson Partnership for Care with a pig roast and summer fete for service users, their families and our staff. I would like to thank everyone involved who made the day such a success.
The event at The Mews was centred around the service users from all of our homes because they are always at the centre of what we do. Each of our residential homes provided an activity or game, such as ‘name the teddy’, ‘hook the duck’, giant playing cards and Connect 4, as well as ball games. We also had some beautiful owls on display, which had been rescued after being injured in the wild, so were used to human contact and were very popular with everyone.
The sun shone, there was a wonderful atmosphere and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. We had some fantastic positive feedback from the service users and their families on the day, which was really rewarding.
The event epitomised what we have been doing for the last 25 years: We have always focused on the needs of service users, providing specialist care for adults with learning difficulties and/or acquired brain injury. Our ethos of social integration, dignity, respect and choice was clearly demonstrated in the way that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the event. It also enabled families of our service users to meet and chat, sharing experiences in a relaxed environment and enjoying time with their loved ones.
Thanks again to everyone for making it a special day and we look forward to the next 25 years!
