this morning i had a really good chat with Nick Fripp a trustee...
checking in about our Risk Assessing, as lockdown is potentially easing?...
We have a 3 fold Risk Assessment considering: the individual, the group and meeting place, and Shallal's overall policy...
......which is responsive and keeping up to date - which isn't easy in our present political climate.
(A friend feels it is led more by politics than medicine.)
We now have a Covid 19 Briefing which enables us to share information and is constantly being updated...
So so sad to see this
... Debs has voiced concerns about from the beginning, the fact that many of the caring supports that are usually in place in the NHS ( when people with learning disabilities go into hospital) 'aren't'? able to be provided, in this emergency situation.
Inclusion means making equal (equity) not providing equal ...
i was looking for the first one and then found the following 2!
we do need a system change...
Projects are blooming under the skill, sensitivity and enthusiasm of those leading them..
Claire Mayle with Shallal Sketchbooks
Parcel Post the studios new outreach project is beginning with Lou and Phoebe.
Shallal Dance Theatre's Art and Production afternoon slot has become
Shallal Art Zoom meeting for people across Shallal hosted by Barry Cooper, and with artists from West Cornwall to Liskeard joining in.
Shallal 2 goes international with Lily and Nicky from the hilltops of Southern Spain, to a garden in Scotland with old Shallal colleague Shelley joining in after work!
Pep pops into Open House Penzance and Shallal Dance Theatre whilst the concrete is mixing on his building project in Catalonia!
so thanks to modern technology we keep in touch.
However equality and equity come into all these equations.
We are very aware that not everyone has access to technology some by poverty, some by choice.
We also phone chat & send post.
