Being charitable. And eating cake.
I had forgotten, but the delicious smell of chocolate (and my colleagues reminded me) that today was one of our on-site events for 'Red Nose Day'. I treated myself to a bracelet, and played a game (hoping to win the huge chocolate stash of course!). Watching the fun enfold around me, I saw our lads happy, being creative, considerate and thoughtful. As the Comic Relief Charity notes "whatever you do, no matter how small, you can help people live free from poverty, violence and discrimination. This includes funding organisations that are supporting people right now in Ukraine, and those attempting to cross the border. Because you have the power to change lives."
In a Therapeutic Community the community is the therapy, and it is through their interactions with staff and peers that our young people confront their pasts and develop a new sense of how their lives could be. Residency at Glebe House is an investment in a young boy's life, that allows them to move towards a life that is independent, free from harm, and which enables them to contribute to society.
Seeing our young people involved with Red Nose Day, actively making a difference (with the help of our amazingly dedicated staff of course) has clearly impacted and benefited their confidence and self-esteem. Bravo everyone! Now. To enjoy my cakes (yes, plural, don't judge me!)
