20th Celebrations Activities
Our 20th Anniversary celebrations kicked off at the 5 a side football tournament earlier this month and the ball is now well and truly rolling!
Award nominations for the service user, staff and other stakeholder awards are coming into head office at a good rate. If you haven’t nominated anyone yet then download the nomination form here and let someone know that their work is appreciated and valued.
We have launched the Creativity Competitions and the regional offices look forward to receiving all service users’ entries by the end of August. If you are planning on having an activity day as part of Service User Involvement Month in September, to create arts, crafts or posters for the competitions, do not worry, you can send your entries to Alison White at head office as long as they arrive by Monday 20th September. More details, including the entry form can be downloaded here.
We have heard from projects and services across the country about the activities and events they are planning for our special celebratory Service User Involvement Month in September. If you haven’t let us know your plans yet, please do. If you need assistance with planning an event or funding it, download the Service User Involvement Grant application form here.
And finally, we will be having a big celebratory party and awards ceremony in Manchester at the end of October. More details will follow on this later.
Throughout the year we have a film crew who will be filming some of the activities and events taking place around the country and interviewing some of our service users and staff about Creative Support. This filming will be used to make us a short film and a documentary about Creative Support, the work we do and the difference we make to people’s lives. They will also make short highlights films about the winners of the Service User Awards to be shown at the Manchester party.
As you can see we have a very full year, and with the participation and assistance of our service users and staff we look forward to making it a year to remember for a very long time! Please do encourage everyone to participate!
If you have any questions or would like more details on any of the celebration initiatives, contact Alison, Alannah, Harriet or Suzanne at head office.
