After nearly 10 years our Young Parents Lead, Sarah Childs, is standing down at the end of the year to start a new chapter in her life. She’s leaving the project in great shape and it offers a fantastic opportunity for the right person to make a difference to the lives of young parents (to 25) and their children in North Dorset.
It certainly feels as though things are getting back to normal and we couldn’t be happier! This week has seen us re-open the centre properly for the first time since March 2019: the soft furniture is back in place; we’ve welcomed two new staff members; restarted ‘Bekah’s Kitchen’; invited our local PCSO, Jamie Randell, to visit our young parents’ group in Sherborne to talk about home safety; restarted our learning sessions in Sherborne and Yeovil after the summer break and managed to avoid a flooding issue in the centre.
In the first of a new series of articles to give insight into life at the Rendezvous, we asked Sarah Childs to tell us in her own words what a typical day is like for her.
