Walliscote Road welcomes Bella on her Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme

Bella, a young person based in North Somerset, is currently completing her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award for which she needs to complete 26 hours of volunteering.

Kate Harvey, the Registered Manager of our Walliscote Road service, was approached to accommodate Bella on her mission. Kate accepted and quickly put all the procedures in place to enable Bella to volunteer as a support worker.

Thank you to Bella for all her hard work, helping to unlock the potential of the people we support. All at National Care Group wish you well with your Duke of Edinburgh award and look forward to working with you as a colleague in the future!
