For so many of our staff, supporting people to achieve their goals is incredibly important. When *Samantha, a lady supported in Hampshire declared she wanted to see a few animals...there was only one thing for it. A trip to the zoo.
For many of our staff, supporting someone to enjoy a day filled with learning, adventure and imagination is what their job is all about.
Speaking about what inspired the recent trip, Helen a member of staff said:
"Each month we have a 'My Meeting' where the team sit down with the people we support. It's a chance to let us know if they’re happy, want anything to change and see what they would like to achieve in the coming month."
"One of the ladies said she wanted to go to the zoo, so we decided to make a day trip for all who wanted to go."
With the weather on their side, the group were delighted to see a variety of animals and even stopped for a spot of lunch. However, the highlight of the day had to be a moment of laughter shared between the group.
"We had a lot of laughter, as one of our team put her head in the mouth of a hippo statue, to amuse the ladies and her colleagues, but she lost her balance and had to be supported by staff!"
