Best wishes to you all

Well for most of our professional colleagues it’ll be winding down time for the festive period. We’re still busy here at Rush House. We’ve been lucky to have a decorator in for the last few days painting the downstairs bathroom/toilet of our Bedsit accommodation. It has made such a difference and gives the place that fresh feel. We’ve also been busy reorganising our main office space in preparation for new staff coming on board in the New Year. Such an exciting and positive time for us as we gear up to getting back to what we do best, supporting vulnerable people.

 

We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our colleagues from the wonderfully varied organisations that we work alongside a very happy festive period and all the very best for 2018. To our past tenants, volunteers & staff we wish you every happiness for 2018 and to the staff team at Rush House I wish you personally a very peaceful and happy holiday and thank you for being the amazing bunch of people that you are. Onwards and upwards in 2018!!

Busy busy busy!

Well things are busy again at Rush House as we prepare for some new tenants in the New Year. The curtains are going up in our newly decorated Bedsit accommodation, adding a splash of colour to the  rooms. We’ve been really pleased to have a colleague from one of the many external agencies we work with come and have a look around. She was more than impressed and said that they are a brilliant place for young people to start their journey towards independence.

Today we have been visited by our lovely Vice Chair who also wanted to see what we have been up to. Now would be a very opportune moment as we head towards 2018, to pay tribute to the wonderful ladies and gentlemen on our Board of Trustees. I can say with all sincerity that we have such a wonderful group of individuals who give their time year in, year out advising and guiding us through what have been some quite turbulent times this last year. We cannot thank them enough for their time, passion and commitment…..Thank you all!

We are of course still on the hunt for a team of passionate, committed and enthusiastic staff to join our Rush House family. We have 3 different roles that we are seeking to recruit to; Support Worker, Night Worker and Keyworker. If you, or someone you know has a flare for engaging difficult to reach young people and is looking to join a well established and developing organisation with a proven track record for “opening doors for young people” , look no further than our Jobs & Volunteering page where you will find all our job adverts and application information.  It would be great to hear from people who already have experience of working with this client group, but we are also open to applications from people wanting to get into this line of work as long as you can demonstrate that you have passion and commitment to working with young people and a willingness to learn new skills.

 

More news later in the week……..
