Tricky Period

Tricky Period

Homeless women and females on low incomes benefit from services set up to provide free sanitary products at Norwich’s main libraries. The Tricky Period project involves the libraries taking donations of products and handing them out to people who cannot afford them, with no questions asked about proof of eligibility. The Magdalene Group supports this initiative & can provide its service-users with any sanitary products they require.

Clinks’ annual conference 2019

Suzi Heybourne, our CEO, is attending Clinks' annual conference 2019 in London today. The conference 'creating change together' offers attendees the chance to hear from key policy and decision makers, and to network with voluntary sector organisations and government officials. "People in the criminal justice system and their families are facing increasing challenges in getting the support they need to lead fulfilling lives. Successive political and administrative changes to the structures in criminal justice, coupled with reducing resources, mean that many people are unable to get the help they need. The voluntary sector’s role is more important than ever, but it too faces unprecedented challenges. Into the future, we need to work together to speak up on behalf of service users and communities, and to provide flexible services that meet changing needs. Clinks is ambitious about the future and potential of the sector. We want to build and support a movement of organisations who play an essential role in helping people to desist from crime and turn their lives around."

Presentation

Presentation

A nice little presentation, over tea & cake - & before last evening's trustees meeting - to acknowledge the valuable contribution - over the years - of Stephen, David & John, three of our long-serving volunteers. 'Thank you' is never enough.

Management workshop

Managing & Leading Teams - a very worthwhile training session today - led by Tracey Hicks, Training & Assessment in Healthcare Ltd. It was relevant, timely & thought-provoking.

Volunteering Opportunities

We are always looking for enthusiastic and reliable volunteers to join our team. In return for your support we provide our volunteers with a robust induction and ongoing training in all areas. All volunteers will require a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS). Check out our Get Involved page for more information, & complete our application form.

Sexual Health drop-ins

The Rose team have been delivering sexual health drop-ins over the past few months to young people across Norfolk with funding from Public Health. In these sessions we’ve used a variety of inter-active games, activities and resources to educate young people on contraception, STIs, healthy relationships and staying safe. We aim to create an engaging, open space for them to ask questions and as a result we have had many positive inter-actions with young people and staff alike.

Well-being event at Hellesdon High

"A team from the ROSE Project attended a Well-being event at Hellesdon High School on Thursday 25th April. We had some great inter-actions with young people and gave out lots of our new booklets, and spoke to parents and teachers to raise awareness about the project. We were there with dozens of organisations from across Norfolk who are working with young people, so it was a great chance to hear about the great work they're all doing too. Thanks to Hellesdon High for inviting us!" Jess Rolfe, Outreach Worker
