|WELCOME TO THE ASPIRATIONS
This site has been developed with the aim of helping you find out
more about Aspirations, and should give you some idea of what we
are about, and what we do.
Aspirations started on 11 Nov 02. It is second-storey offices
with a large kitchen and a dining hall; it has a stair lift and
a toilet for those in wheelchairs.
At Aspirations, Staff and Service Users work in partnership to
create a positive working and learning culture that helps connect
people with their community. We also work to raise awareness of
mental health issues.
HOW WE WORK….
Referrals to Aspirations are made through the Surrey Heath and
Blackwater Valley Community Mental Health Teams. Aspirations supports
adults who have a severe and enduring mental illness and are between
the ages of 18 to 65. A potential new member will usually visit
us before deciding whether they wish to be referred to Aspirations,
and which aspects of the service they wish to access.
We are organised into four units: Administrative, Housekeeping,
Education, and Community Connections. Service Users access all
units according to their needs.
To enable Service Users to reach their goals, we use a Service
Support System (SSS), which has been developed to help identify
strengths, skills and abilities. It is a paper-based exercise
to help the key worker get to know a new Service User and is designed
to help people identify their goals and work towards achieving
them, whether in training or leisure activities.
When someone joins Aspirations, they will be allocated a Key Staff
Worker and given a full induction into the serive. A fellow Service
User may also volunteer to help show them around the centre.
Health and safety is important to us and we do regular health
and safety walkabout checks. All Staff and Service Users are aware
of the need for high standards of safety.
