OUR NEWS AND EVENTS BLOG
Towards the end of 2016 we were delighted to receive news that we had been successful in our bid to be awarded a grant towards our planned sensory garden and outside space as part of the Tesco Bags of Help Initiative. We are pleased to announce that we were given £12,000 towards this project (the maximum amount available) which will make such a difference to what we are able to achieve.
On the 17th February 2017 we were delighted to welcome HRH the Duke of Gloucester as part of his Royal visit to Ledbury in Herefordshire. During the visit which lasted 45 minutes, the Duke visited a number of our ‘Creative Learning’ activities and spoke to some of the people who were attending their sessions which included Gardening, Domestic Skills, Clay and Media Skills.
On Thursday night we welcomed two new arrivals to Salter’s Hill as one of our Ryelands ewes gave birth to twin rams! Both mother and babies are doing well. This week our Creative Learning Animal groups are planning to choose some names for the pair.
On Monday our Chief Executive Amanda Johnson attended an event held by VODG (Voluntary Organisations Disability Group) called ‘What are the barriers and enablers to closing the disability employment gap?’ based on the Green Paper consultation.
This event was particularly relevant to the projects we are currently developing around employment and enabling adults with learning disabilities to find meaningful and appropriate paid work. We are extremely pleased to say that we have funding for this Employment initiative in 2017 from the Forbes Foundation and Gloucestershire County Council.
On the 16th February 2017 we will be holding a volunteer information event at the Good News Centre in Newent (High Street, GL18 1AN).
If you’re interested in finding out more about volunteering at Salter’s Hill and becoming a ‘Buddy’, drop in between 11.30am and 1.30pm for an informal chat with our Volunteer Co-ordinator Laura.

We would also like to say a big thank-you to the Good News Centre for hosting us!
