The start of something great…


Penny and Nic spend a productive at Regent College, Shelton.

This morning Penny and I met with Jim Cullen and (briefly) David Vincent from Regent College in Shelton.  We received a warm welcome and had a very productive morning discussing how Regent College and the Creative Communities Unit can develop a collaborative approach to our work.  They specialise in providing residential, nursing and education for people with  learning disabilities and autism.  One of the most striking things for me from our meeting was how, underlying all of their work, deep at the heart, is a commitment to addressing inequalities.  Regent college are expanding their staff teams (a rare thing in the current climate) and so always have staff vacancies.  They also have an extensive and comprehensive training programme for all staff so you will be well supported if you worked with them.

I have attached a little bit of information here, and also some links to their website.  It is well worth a visit.
