Parents into Work event

A great start to the year we were invited to attend the Parents into Work event at Bulwell Jobcentre on the 16th January 2019. It was an opportunity for us to let people know about the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) project, we are running. Which is part funded by Nottingham City Council, DWP and the European Union through the European Social Fund (ESP).

The event gave parents who are returning to work access to information and support on:

Identifying their skills and career aims,

CV building and getting online,

Up skilling/Training,

Financial Support/Budgeting,

Employment opportunities and support with applying for jobs,

Exploring Childcare options.

Missing Appointments Matter

NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation aimed at citizens to encourage them to attend medical appointments, and to take children and adults they care for to their appointments.  The animation is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need.

Rethinking ‘Did not Attend’ appointments

Nottingham City Council, NHS Nottingham City CCG and the NCSCB have jointly commissioned a video animation to encourage practitioners to identify children as ‘Was Not Brought’ as opposed to ‘Did Not Attend’ when referring to them not being presented at medical appointments.

Morgan’s Story

My Dad drinks a lot of alcohol and sometimes gets very loud. This scares me because he doesn’t act like my Dad. Dad lost his job because of his problem so now stays at home all day. He doesn’t do much around the house so I help Mum with the cleaning, cooking and looking after my younger sister Amy. Amy is a good girl but sometimes she needs my help. When I’m at school I think about home and I forget what the teacher is saying. Sometimes I’m really tired as Dad can be really noisy at night and keep me awake.  Morgan, aged  16.
