Local Employment in the Wirral [Surveyor Updates]
Last week, our Head of Surveying Rich and Surveying Employer/Administrator Rachel were in the Wirral to do some training with people from Wirral Evolutions.
The team started off doing classroom training at Highcroft Day Centre for a few hours, which the attendees really seemed to enjoy, and there was a lot of input from everyone.
Following the training, the team had lunch and proceeded the day at Croft Retail Park to walk around a few shops and gather information for the guides. Again everyone really enjoyed the day out and a few got involved asking people questions.
A few gained a lot more confidence this week and really wanted to know a lot more about DisabledGo.
There were a few members of staff that got involved through the day; Sue and Christine were a great helping hand in caring for the attendees and getting to know more about what we do.
Taylor (pictured below) took to the surveying straight away and filled in the form at every store the group when to, including Pets at Home. Rich was very impressed with the way he communicated with the staff at the venues.
The DisabledGo Wirral project is a new project that will focus on getting both Detailed Access Guides and Key Access Reviews throughout the area. The Wirral Evolutions team will be helping us gather information on Key Access reviews.
The online access guide will cover loads of different places, including restaurants, shops, leisure centres, parks, theatres, libraries, museums, supermarkets, hotels – this list goes on!
The surveyors were – Angela, Paul, Alison, Taylor and Carl. 3 people attended from Oakenholt Centre and they were Carl, Tiffany and Jason.
The members of staff who attended the training, (who also provided transport and aid) took the total amount of people up to 12 who now know how to survey Key Access Reviews in the Wirral.
Rich and Rachel really enjoyed it and were made to feel really welcome by everyone who attended, they were all really friendly and willing to learn more. We hope to go back and visit to do more training one day.
