Staff look back over their time at the Foundation...

On my first position with SF in 2005, a teenage parent I worked in a mother and baby unit in Wythenshawe and have kept in touch ever since, she now has her own business and graduated from uni last year

When (client) at the Women's centre learned to read and write and gave EVERYONE she met a Christmas card!

The Tougher Minds event was a great memory for me!! Having lots of members of the team support at the event and make it run smoothly was lovely!

Last year's team away day. So much fun running around Salford Quays ! :)

On my first day at SF, it was like everybody already knew me, everyone was SO welcoming and it wasn't like starting a new job at all. Felt like I had been there forever!

Just remembered the "social" we had and pub quiz.....when I knew the answers to the questions because I was the only one born then ha ha

When I 7 balled (colleague) at Pool in the Old Pint Pot on a works drinks

Past 2 years taking part with the lads on the activity weekend put on my JD Foundation and the Mountain Rescue team!

When I got to go to Bulgaria with work!

When (colleague) got (CEO) to 'get active' by doing a little afternoon boogie in the middle of the office

Probably the Emerge trip to Tatton Park last July. We all got soaked but everyone had a good laugh.

When we invited the lady who we see sat on the bench alone outside to join our Macmillan coffee morning, it was her birthday that day, the client wrote her a birthday card and gave her a cake. I see her around Eccles sometimes and she still remembers me from that day.

When I came in on my first day of work dressed in heels and super corporate - the team were all dressed casual but after a gentle reminder from (manager) regarding the NCS team dress code, I soon got the right idea.

The races trip with a few of the staff over past few years.

Because I rarely see everyone (I work in the prisons) my highlight was the away day last year! really loved it!

I really enjoy these times we get together to be reminded of the lovely SF family we have! I also enjoyed working closely with Katie Taylor on the tougher minds project and seeing the fab work she does.

I was made to feel really welcome when I arrived at SF, I can't believe it's nearly been a year!!

All the different amazing people I've experienced over my many years of SF. Really proud of the work I've been involved in and the impact its had.

Proud of the growth of Steer from when it first started to now.

Proud of the peel resource centre that I helped to bring together and the WhatsApp group we formed. I laugh everyday with the ladies.
