New Year, new us…5 January, 2017
So here it is.. the final weekly round-up of the year!
A member of the team supported a woman to meet with her housing officer. Her advocacy worker helped her communicate her views on her current situation and her desire to relocate to a house in the area, explaining that her current house was becoming a daily obstacle for her.
Secret Santa and team breakfast, Ronnie has been attempting his Sudoku Rubix Cube ever since…
OPAL operations meeting at CAB where plans for the New Year were discussed, including dates for meetings and future visits from partner organisations.
The management team met with Neil Ross to discuss the official report on the work of Ceartas over the past year.
A member of the team went on a home visit to discuss with a woman how independent advocacy can support her upcoming PIP assessment. Advocacy support in this situation involved meeting with the person beforehand to discuss her views, and communicating her views clearly at certain points throughout the meeting.
A member of the team accompanied a young man to the Job Centre to support him in his search for finding work. The main role of advocacy in this situation was to help explain his circumstances clearly and why certain requirements of his job seeking agreement may be unable to meet.

All at Ceartas would like to wish you a very merry festive period and we look forward to seeing you in the New Year!!
