Hello, my name is Paula and I have worked for Vibrance since 1999! I started as a Support Worker and with the support of Vibrance progressed to Project Worker, Deputy Manager and finally to Manager. I was successful in obtaining my current post in 2009.
I have truly loved every post that I have held within Vibrance, and I can honestly say I have never not wanted to go work! I enjoy supporting service users to achieve things and I like to make anything happen. I do get a personal satisfaction when individuals achieve something however small, and you see the enjoyment in their expressions or body language. I enjoy supporting people to be independent and to have control over their lives. I also enjoy supporting staff with their development and I like teaching people.
Vibrance has supported me to become a manager, and this was always my goal. They have provided me with opportunities to learn throughout my career and when I have not been confident with something supported me in taking small steps and before I knew it I was confident in it without even realizing!
Hi, my name is Olaniran, I joined Vibrance in February 2016 as a relief worker since July 2017 I have been contracted as an Activity worker at Waltham Forest Day Opportunities.
Working for Vibrance gives me a good work / life balance. I find the role rewarding as it gives me the opportunity to work with different people of different backgrounds, supporting them to access their local community.
I have undertaken mandatory training courses, and I have also been trained as an I.T Buddy, which enables me to support my colleagues.
My name is Debbie Wallace. I started my career with Vibrance 11 years ago working at Dunelm Nursing home as a Support Worker. During my time at Dunelm, I became the Health & Safety Representative, Staff Consultation Representative, Full First Aider, and did my MIDAS (minibus driver awareness scheme) training, which enabled Service Users more access to the community.
During my time at Dunelm, the Nurses and Manager gave me so much encouragement and support to develop, that I really wanted to progress in my career; so, after 6 years I applied, and was successful, for a Project Worker post at another service for Vibrance. I started working at Larwood 5 years ago. This was a real challenge for me as it was in a residential setting. We also had a sister home which was low support; both areas were new to me.
My name is Samantha Gatehouse; I started working for Vibrance at Corporation Road 10 years ago, and although I left for a little over a year, I returned February this year. My time working for Vibrance has been great; the training offered both mandatory and developmentally is excellent, and has given me the opportunity to gain qualifications (NVQ 3 in health and social care) and expand my knowledge in different areas of care. I have completed 4 distance learning courses Inc. advanced medication, advanced dementia care, and I am frequently offered other developmental courses which is great.
Corporation road is a lovely place to work. It has a fantastic family atmosphere amongst the staff and our Service Users. We are a great team who regularly go “above and beyond” to ensure our Service Users happiness and well-being. All our Service Users are treated with the upmost dignity and respect; we try our best to ensure each resident is treated as an individual and that their life goals/dreams are made their reality.
