Volunteer story… Robbie
Robbie joined us in June 2014 looking to support Neelam attend the gym regularly. Robbie came to us to enable him to fulfil his desire to become a personal trainer and felt volunteering in the gym would help him gain the experience and confidence to pursue this. Neelam a member of ours was looking for someone to motivate and support her in the gym, so the partnership works well for both of them. Robbie was looking for a little support in arranging sessions and there structure with Neelam due to a head injury causing him difficulties with planning. We were able to assist with this to begin with until Robbie felt comfortable taking control and the pair met regularly for 6 months helping Neelam to increase her fitness and manage her fatigue.
Robbie has since then supported another of our members to start going to the gym regularly by helping with motivation and guidance, knowing that she has a friendly face to meet her and accompany around the gym. Robbie has now joined an Instructability course where he is training for a fitness qualification, he has also been offered a part time position at the local gym. Well done Robbie!
Volunteer story… Richard and Tony
Richard joined us in December 2014 as a volunteer to give something back to the community. He had found his world thrown upside down after having a stroke, most of all when returning home and trying to rebuild his life. He was keen to support other people deal with the changes he faced and see the positives he has through community groups and activities.
We paired Richard up with a new member Tony, who was feeling isolated since a stroke has restricted his mobility and he spends a lot of time indoors. We arranged for the pair to meet at Tony’s, although it was quite difficult for Richard to access Tony’s house due to steps and narrow doorways, Richard did well getting in with support of his wife Helen. They had a great chat, realising the pair got on very well we planned to meet again occasionally when both chaps could arrange transport to avoid the difficulty of accessing Tony’s house. They have been chatting on the phone in the meantime and plan to have meet ups in town, Tony using a fair4all taxi service who have been really helpful and Richard using dial a ride.
Enrych Oxfordshire’s summer trip 2015
Enrych Oxfordshire had a lovely outing in Portsmouth last week with some of the group going up the Spinnaker Tower (very brave – it’s very high up!), some visiting the Historic Dockyard and others shopping.
Many members, with different disabilities, were able to go and enjoy the sunny weather and bright company.
Adult Social Care in Warwickshire – your views count
Adult Social Care Engagement Week – June 2015
Warwickshire County Council are reviewing the future of adult social care services with a focus on quality to ensure people are getting the right care, in the right place at the right time.
From Monday 22 June to Friday 26 June 2015, council staff will be talking to as many people as possible about their experiences of using a range of adult social care services.
They want to hear the views of people who are using home care, residential and nursing care home services to find out what they think of their current services and how things can be improved.
They also want to speak to informal carers to find out more about the support they receive and the help they need.
To raise awareness of the week, surveys will be available at GP surgeries and pharmacies and council staff will be at the county’s hospitals, residential & nursing care homes to speak to people who are using these services, as well as surveys being delivered to home care customers in their own homes.
Or you can go on line to: https://askwarks.wordpress.com/
If you have any queries, need assistance to complete the survey or require the survey in another format, please contact Warwickshire County Council’s Co-production Team on 01926 742335 or email

I have only just started volunteering with Enrych and I have to say I am very impressed with their commitment and enthusiasm re support of people in the community.
As a Befriender I’m not sure who is getting the most from our visits – probably me!
