1 Andover and District Mencap Registered Charity No May 2015

2 2 Dear Staff & Volunteers I hope you are all well, and that the spring / summer season brings you that happy feeling that it brings to me. Work can often seem to be a much happier place to be when the sun is shining. However work you enjoy plays a big part in both personal and professional success. I certainly feel that is the case for myself, as I love working here at ADM and leading you all through the challenges we face as an organisation. We have certainly faced some challenges this last 12 months. The tenders, the TUPE, and adapting to new clients and services. As an organisation we have jumped that hurdle, and although we are still embedding new services we have been successful. That success is attributed to us all, a real team effort. In recognition for the efforts of all, work has been undertaken on the budget this year to factor in a 1.5% pay rise. The board have agreed the budget and all staff on ADM s terms and conditions will be receiving the rise from the 1 st July I am really pleased to bring you this news, as I know how hard you all work to deliver a quality service. Without that dedication and commitment we would not be a success and we would not have been in a position to recognise your support. However we cannot rest on our laurels, we believe we have more work on evidencing what a fantastic service we deliver and the difference we make to people s lives. We are currently planning a project to engage as many of you as possible in helping shape the vision / values and expectations of the organisation. To create an organisation that we are all proud of, and one where we are ALL 100% certain that we are the best Care provider in Andover and the surrounding area. Keep an eye out for the project. In an organisation of this size we are always saying goodbye to someone. This time it is to Sarah Lyles our HR Manager. Sarah has been with us for 9 years, and has grown into a HR Manager that somebody else has decided they want. We are all proud of Sarah s success and we wish her well in the future. Please take a moment to say goodbye, as I am sure Sarah has supported you all in some way during those 9 years. I finish as always with a BIG THANK YOU for your continued dedication and commitment. Chris Dixon Chief Executive

3 3 TOMBOLA DONATIONS On Wednesday 17th June Nessie Cuthbertson and Andrea Knight-Down will be representing Andover and District Mencap at James Place Fete and Barbecue. We are planning on hosting a Tombola table and are looking for donations that will be used as prizes. If you have anything that you would like to donate please see Nessie or Andrea. JAMES PLACE FÊTE and BARBECUE WEDNESDAY JUNE 17 TH START AT 2:00PM Fun for everyone!!! Bring your family and friends games, stalls, competitions, activities. This Fete is being organised and managed by Friends of James s Place, a committee of James s Place members, volunteers and staff.

UPDATED POLICIES Please find enclosed the following policies which have been reviewed and revised: COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) Policy for and Management of Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Policy for and Management of RIDDOR ( Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) Policy for and Management of Health and Safety Policy for and Management of Moving and Handling Policy for and Management of Duty of Candour Enclosed is an acknowledgement slip which needs to be completed and returned to Annette Hayes as soon as possible. VOLUNTEERS WEEK As part of Volunteers Week we will be holding a BBQ Party at the Wellington Centre on Friday 5th June at 6.30pm for all of our fantastic volunteers. This is our opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our volunteers for all of their hard work and commitment. Please R.S.V.P to Amy Pegg at or on

4 4 HELP NEEDED The Summer Ball is our biggest event of the year, and it is an event where we have an opportunity to realise a lot of money for the organisation. Not only through the ball itself but through the raffle and the auction. All the money raised as we know is put back into the organisation, either to purchase new equipment or to develop projects and initiatives. ADM is about us all and the collective energies that we can pool together. Both for our clients with Learning Disabilities and the future of the organisation. As we will all appreciate to secure a good quality range of raffle prizes and auction prizes takes time and energy and with this in mind Matt and I would like to call on our collective energies and request your help and support in contacting people and identifying prizes. I am not asking for hours, if each of us could make five phone calls on the organisations behalf, then we would be reducing the burden on one person, and also increasing the likelihood of securing a good range of prizes and lots and hopefully raise an awful lot of money for the organisation. We have 200+ people receiving this . Five calls should take approx. 20 minutes of your time, not long really in the grand scheme of things. If you are able to help please contact Matt Martin, Fundraiser, on or at for more information and a copy of the prewritten script. Thanks in advance and I do appreciate your support with this. Chris Dixon

A huge thank you to everybody who took part in the sponsored zip wire challenge on April 19th. Not only was it a great day, but although to be confirmed it looks like we made an incredible 7,000 from the day.
