Visiting Cadbury World – or should we say chocolate heaven, was a sweet experience.
From learning about the manufacturing process, to the making of chocolate, we’ve experienced it all.
The best bit though – chocolate making, and the shop after. Needless to say we came home with loads of chocolate!
As you know we have an avid bunch of fundraisers here at Goldcrest House.
This time it’s Chris and Jonathan who have raised £179 for the Goole charity The Green Team.
The Green Team tragically lost an employee in a road traffic accident this year and adding to the upset one of the charity’s vans was stolen. The financial and emotional impact has been great. In order to raise both funds and lift the spirits of volunteers a Halloween theme sponsored walk was organised, which Chris and Jonathan gladly took part in. Well done chaps.
Well done to the caring team, our service users, and their families, the CQC have awarded us with an overall good rating after a recent inspection.
Assessed on five key categories: Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive and Well-led, we came out on top with a ‘Good’ rating across all areas of our care. View the full report here.
The CQC said: “The care service has been developed and designed in line with the values that underpin the Registering the Right Support and other best practice guidance. These values include choice, promotion of independence and inclusion. People with learning disabilities and autism using the service can live as ordinary a life as any citizen.”
To say we are overjoyed is an understatement, well done everyone and keep up the good work.
