A CHARITY based in Seaforth has awarded its managers at a presentation event to mark their continued effort in helping locals.

Staff from Expect Ltd, who run the Bowersdale Centre, had taken part in training as they got to grips with a new system that they will now adopt to boost their support network.

They had been working towards this target of being able to carry out the new policy, which will involve developing a detailed plan of action for anyone with learning disabilities or mental health problems.

The system was introduced to the whole of Expects services following an eight month long pilot programme.

The managers that received awards undertook a rigorous training and development programme over a four month period.

Steve McDermott said “The managers here receiving their certificates of achievement highlight Expects drive to build support around people, not around organisations. Everyone is different and the way that we support people must be different too.

”These are the first of Expects managers to have been trained from start to finish. It’s been a challenging training programme and the learning curve has been steep but the new skills they have learnt will help people who use Expect to lead more enjoyable, meaningful and independent lives in the community.“
