I am excited to have recently started working for Fledge as the Lead Support Worker (currently the only support worker!) I have a background in children and youth work, most recently with those who are Looked After and Care Leavers.
I’m looking forward to applying the skills and experience I have to the role at Fledge as well as learning new ones and to seeing this exciting project develop over the coming months.
We are very pleased to have our first three residents settled into the Fledge house. As well as Fledge providing them with a safe place to live and support as they journey towards living independent, fulfilled lives, the residents have been a great help to us as we learn and adapt our provision in order to serve them and other young people in the future in the most effective way.
Examples of what we have been able to offer so far are healthy meal planning and cooking sessions, planting and growing herbs, support and advice with budgeting and money management and support to access other provision in the community. Future plans include an art session and regular health walks. If you have skills in a particular area that you think would benefit our residents and some free time to volunteer, then we would love to hear from you!
