Wellbeing in the Workplace

The team took part in a free workshop led by Mark Bishop, Wellbeing trainer, for the Norfolk & Waveney Wellbeing Service. The focus was building resilience, & reminded us all that - in order to look after others - we need to look after ourselves. It was a useful & thought-provoking session.

Teaching & Learning Day at City College Norwich

Teaching & Learning Day at City College Norwich

Jess and Abbie attended City College Norwich earlier this month to share about the Rose Project and our Transitional service with some of their staff. We took along some of our resources, including a game that encourages young people to share facts and their opinions about sex and relationships, & the booklet we created last year for young people around identifying exploitation. It was also great to meet and reconnect with the other local services and organisations who were represented.

Welcome…..

Session for Professionals

"For the final Session for Professionals of the year, The Magdalene Group welcomed representatives from Early Help, Momentum, OPEN, Norfolk Library Service, Norfolk & Waveney Mind, Norfolk Citizens Advice and a Social Work student on placement with the Norwich LAC team. After providing an overview of the range of work that our Doorway and Transition Services, Rose Project, EnRoute and Jigsaw carry out, we opened the field for questions. This led to thought-provoking discussion around how services can better support our client groups. Notwithstanding the challenges, there was a clear desire in the room for multi-agency working and supporting client-led service plans. This was a rewarding opportunity for networking across several local authority and voluntary sector services and we hope that the participants left with a greater understanding of the work of The Magdalene Group." Morwenna Chaffe, CSE Practitioner
