A message from Marlow our CEO
2023 – Oh what a year! Where does the time go? It doesn’t seem that long since Perth Six Circle (PSC) was celebrating Christmas 2022.
2023 has been another good year with so many great adventures. This year has also brought about many changes, something we are very used to, with some of our service users moving on to new ventures and some new service users joining the ‘Six Circle Family’ – as we are fondly known.
Our Learning and Development events have created amazing opportunities for intergenerational connections and these have been fully embraced by all. These events have taken us out with Perth and Kinross, offering service users the opportunity to visit other towns, cities and countryside. Service users, including those who have had limited opportunity to stay away from home before, have found these very exciting and rewarding. They have particularly enjoyed just being together, having meals together, laughing and joking together and feeling part of a family.
The care and support our service users show one another is so heart-warming to observe and something our staff team will continue to encourage and embrace this as not only does it help the individual receiving the support it creates a sense of purpose for the ‘helper’, thus driving home our motto ‘In meeting the needs of others we meet the needs in ourselves’.
I would like to thank everyone who has supported PSC throughout the last 12 months with input, advice, donations and help and more – as these connections are invaluable to us and assists us to continue to help and support our service users to feel more valued within their community and live a better quality of life.
We are looking forward to supporting, encouraging and helping as many people as we can in the next 12 months to: take up new challenges and adventures; make new friendships; blossom, become happier; and live a more fulfilled life.
The Management Board and staff team, wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
