Worthing Wheelchair Service and The Gift of Discovery
Last year, the team manager of Worthing Wheelchair Service contacted Blue Gnu to find out how I could help them.
Worthing Wheelchair Service helps people lead independent lives. A small team of therapists works with the organisation’s clients to find them the right kind of mobility aid.
Because they worked in many places with lots of different clients, the Worthing Wheelchair Service team was quite fragmented and rarely spent any time together. Small divisions had started to appear, which were threatening an otherwise harmonious working environment.
It was clear that they needed to spend some time together to build their sense of community, support and team spirit. But as a not-for-profit NHS unit, the organisation had a strict budget.
A Gift of Discovery day was the perfect solution - The Gift of Discovery is a specially-designed 'giving-back' programme from Insights Learning & Development, which gives its Discovery profiles for free for up to 20 people in a charity, not for profit or social enterprise organisation.
Blue Gnu and Insights donated a team building session completely free of charge for the Worthing Wheelchair Service - we’re able to partner like this to offer pro-bono workshops for one team per calendar year and we were delighted to support the service in this way.
Worthing Wheelchair Service team manager Fiona Eldridge, commented:
“Elaine facilitated a team building day with us using the Insights tool. We all had a great day and learnt loads. We now use what we learnt in day-to-day working life and are continuing to use the tools ourselves in team meetings. Thank you!”
