Summer Fair on 7 July The forecast is fine for St Martins' Summer Fair this Friday 7 July. It seems it might be pretty hot, so if you are thinking of coming, please bring a hat, suncream, sunglasses and water. The event will be held outside Hocking Hall at the back of Whittington Park, N19 4RS. We have lots of things planned. The day begins at 11am when there will be some cold drinks and snacks served. St Martins' service users are running a small pop up shop, where they will be selling organic herbs, vegetables, fruit and some cordial they have grown or made with produce from their gardens. There will be summer fair attractions, including splat the rat, crazy golf and coconut shies. There will be music provided by service users and Paul, a staff member who is also a DJ. And we will also have two circus performers, Sorcha and Stewart, going around showing off their marvelous skills. They will also give you lessons in juggling and balancing tricks. What's not to like? The Whittington Park Cafe are providing a big buffet lunch and to close the day, we have the much anticipated service users v staff football match from 3-4pm.  We are all set for a great day and we hope you enjoy it, if you are able to attend.

Action Plans St Martins has been reviewing all the feedback we received from the Service User Survey 2017. The findings have been discussed with staff at each of our services, with suggestions feeding into follow-up action plans. The main area highlighted in these plans is the need for staff to spend more time with some service users. There is a strong correlation between the amount of contact that our service users have with staff and their resulting satisfaction level. Therefore making sure that those who would like more contact receive it, is a primary goal. We are also looking at how we can improve service users' satisfaction in other areas such as housing, positive move on and better management of their mental health.
