In the month of June, Kibble’s Safe Space to Talk service held afternoon teas dedicated to health and wellbeing. Across the two events, parents and carers, and Kibble staff, were warmly invited for a cuppa, cake and a chat. It was an opportunity for everyone to take some time out, learn more about the Safe Space service, enjoy a wellbeing treatment or take part in arts and crafts activities.
The afternoon teas were a real success, with opportunities for parents and carers to share photos and meet with some of the wider team in a relaxed setting. Everyone who came along also received a wellbeing pack with face masks, creams, herbal teas and lavender bags to support relaxation.
The events are part of a number of sessions the Safe Space to Talk service are running over the summer period, with plans to run a series of information workshops and sessions for Kibble staff. These will focus on sharing knowledge and insights on a range of therapies and interventions offered by the Specialist Intervention Services team. This is aligned to our Therapeutic, Trauma-Informed Practice model ensuring staff are skilled and supported.
Safe Space to Talk
Often referred to simply as ‘Safe Space’, the services were established during the pandemic to support Kibble staff who needed a safe, confidential space to talk with an in-house team of therapeutic practitioners and councillors. The service proved to be so successful that it remains in place to this day and is free to access for all staff working across the organisation.
