East Kent Mencap is delighted to have secured funding from the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund to deliver a four year project in Thanet. GOLD, Getting On with Learning Disability, will support local people with learning disabilities, who do not receive statutory funding or are moving out of the welfare system to remain independent and less dependent on welfare services.
East Kent Mencap is looking to recruit a number of full time support workers to join our Supporting Independence Service team in Cliftonville. Working to the guidelines of Valuing People Now, you will offer a personalised service to up to 11 adults with Learning Disabilities within our two supported living homes located in Cliftonville.
We are proud to welcome a second Operations Manager to our team. Karen Loughrill has joined us to lead our Day Opportunities for adults and children with a learning disability and work closely alongside fellow Operations Manager, Tim Birchley, who is responsible for regulated care, domiciliary, community and supported living.
The Supporting People Enablement Team (SPET) are currently helping one of our older tenants to find a companion to spend time with on a regular basis. She loves spending time out and about and is looking for a mature female to share her love of arts and crafts, accompany her on trips, and have a chat over coffee.
In April, two local women organised a quiz night at the Honeysuckle Inn in Ramsgate, which was attended by over 50 people and raised £255 for our services.
