Lara

Hello, my name is Lara,

I am the Business Development manager at The GROW Project, I am new to the project and have been working for the amazing Project for 4 months now and I am LOVING IT!! It is a complete joy to come to work and see the Members engaging, smiling, and gaining on their day to day skills.

I have worked in the Health & Social care sector for 11 years now and have NVQ level 2 & 3 in health and social care.

The GROW Project is an amazing Project to work for and I love the fact The GROW Project is a nonprofit company, which means no money is made, everything will go back into the project which benefits all the members, to ensure they have an amazing time at the day service.

Megan

 Hi my name is Megan I am the project manager at GROW, currently on maternity leave, but cannot wait to get back to work, I have been working in the care industry for the past 8 years, which the last 2 of them have been the best time at GROW, I strive to make sure our members have a happy fun-filled day, to feel safe and included, building their confidence and pushing boundaries, the grow project is truly an amazing place to work, without the dedicated support staff and our wonderful members The GROW project wouldn’t be the success it is today

Maria

I am Maria and before going the amazing GROW team I worked in the very corporate world of IT, at Carnival UK for 16 years and prior to that B&Q. I am very proud of the team and the service they offer to our members by pushing boundaries and supporting them to achieve their goals …. what makes me smile is hearing the laughter coming from the Project … who else can hear that at work?

Jack

HI My name is Jack,

I started my work experience with The GROW Project, back in January 2016, this placement was for two weeks, and loved it so much I asked if I could become a volunteer, to which I become a volunteer for 3 years.  In September 2019 I was offered an amazing opportunity to work as an apprentice whilst attending college studying level 2 in learning disabilities. I managed to get my qualification and now I am working full time at The GROW Project.

 

Ali

Hello, my name is Ali,

I am a support worker at The GROW Project,

Having moved from retail to care 1-4 years ago, I am thankful to have been quickly enrolled into a care training course, which has been fundamentally important in getting my skill level up, to where everyone in the team are confident that I will support members at The GROW Project at my best.

It is a joy to be part of somewhere that believes in everyone, The GROW Project is incredibly supportive and provide fantastic opportunities for all members and staff.

I feel like I have been taught skills and knowledge for life and it really is amazing to be supported by and support wonderful people.
