During these difficult times our dedicated teams are working around the clock to continue looking after our young people. To facilitate social distancing, our office based support staff will be working from home wherever possible and can be contacted using the numbers on our Contact Us page. We are still reviewing all referrals, offering placements where relevant, and planning for young people to move into our homes where it is safe to do so. Despite the challenges we all face during these testing times, we are committed to supporting you and our young people.
Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 and this year celebrated its 50th anniversary on Wednesday 22 April. On this day, events took place worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection and to raise awareness and appreciation for the environment and our natural surroundings.
To mark the occasion, one of our homes undertook a range of activities including planting vegetables and herbs, filling tubs with flowers to attract bees and other insects, providing seed for the birds and not least baking Earth themed cakes.
These are some of the ongoing changes they are implementing within the home to help the environment:
