Volunteer benefits from specialist equipment thanks to charity donation

A long term volunteer for the Adult Learning Disability Service (ALDS) can now work more comfortably thanks to a specially adapted desk funded by the Care Plus Group Charitable Trust. Dawn Sharlotte has worked as a voluntary administrator for over two years, giving two full days per week to the ALDS based at the Queen Street Centre in Grimsby. The small admin team which Dawn works for supports a much larger team consisting of Physiotherapists, Nurses, Health and Wellbeing Coordinators and Behaviour Support Workers to name a few. Dawn has quadriplegic cerebral palsy and is a wheelchair user which would sometimes mean that working at a standard desk was a struggle. Dawn’s manager, Keren Lucas applied for funding from the CPG Charitable Trust in order to purchase a wheelchair accessible office desk so that Dawn could carry out her work with more ease. Keren said: “Dawn is an extremely valuable member of the ALDS team who carries out all administrative tasks to an extremely high standard and is now able to continue doing so thanks to the help of the CPG Charitable Trust.”
