As one member of our team departs, a new member arrives, bringing a wealth of experience, passion and ideas to the All Saints Family!
It's been a little over 9 years since Matt began here at All Saints and, as everything does, his time with us is coming to an end.
There's been lots of changes in that time, the opening out new building, young people coming and going and new adventures in day trips, residential and a whole host of creative, active and fun projects and Matt has been a key part of the journey throughout.
We're all very sad to say goodbye.
"I've loved my time at All Saints. It's been almost a decade with a great staff team who all have the best interests of the young people at heart and that's what makes the place so special. That and the young people of course! Over my time here, I've been blessed to have worked with so many amazing and inspiring young people, some of whom I've watched grow up and who I'll really miss! I just hope that in some small way, I've managed to make a positive difference in their lives and had some kind of impact, no matter how small, as long as it has helped...then that's all I wish for. I can't thank everybody enough for all their support and friendship over the years and know that they will all continue to help All Saints...and the young people who depend on it...thrive and grow."
Matt's last on-site session with us is April 7th and he leaves us for good after the Easter residential on April 15th.
As he leaves, we welcome a new staff member into the family...JORDAN JAMES.
Jordan was originally with us on a placement from Newman University a few years back and made a great impression on the team and young people.
We are so excited to welcome him back as a full-time employee at All Saints and can't wait for him to get started and to see what he brings to the role.
We already know that he'll bring plenty of enthusiasm, passion and positivity to All Saints and we have no doubt that our amazing young people will thrive with his support.
So welcome to the All Saints Family Jordan!
