The Social Exchange aims to merge the community and social care business sector, facilitating and promoting quality activity within the area.
Throughout August, Say Hello have been trialling a new ‘tuck’ shop at the Social Care Exchange, run by supported individuals. Working as fundraisers, the individuals have been enjoying interacting with customers and practising money handling. This has proved a great opportunity to improve social skills and confidence, while gaining valuable life skills and experience. Responsibilities for fundraisers also include pricing, counting stock and recording what they have sold.
A huge thank you to all the individuals who have volunteered and to staff instrumental in supporting this – helping raising money for the charity and keeping us topped up with healthy snacks and sweet treats.
If you support an individual who would like to help with fundraising please contact Rachel at the Social Care Exchange.
