Staff changes

Zebra Access says farewell to Bob Marsh, who has been stalwart in delivering our Employment Service throughout the pandemic, today. Bob, with support from Deirdre (our English & Maths Tutor), has managed to remotely support 42 clients over the past 15 months. They have succeeded in getting 17 of them into employment and 4 back into Education, which is an amazing 50% achievement rate, within months of registering with us. We wish Bob all the best as he goes onto new pastures.

Meanwhile, we are delighted to have secured Linda Beasley as our new Specialist Employment Officer, to continue the fantastic service that Bob has developed. Ella Gadsby, who was our Wellbeing Apprentice on the Kickstart scheme, is now our Wellbeing Officer. She will be continuing the great work that Linda has been doing with arranging coffee mornings, workshops, trips, and so on.

With the pandemic still being very much with us, we will continue to try and bring some normality back by providing a hybrid service (online and face to face). This will enable us to try and help everyone gain access to support, services, information, and social interaction, which is vital to everyone’s wellbeing and lives.

Please do not hesitate to contact Linda or Ella for more information about Employment or Wellbeing services/events.
