On Tuesday 5th May staff and service users from the Phoenix Futures group came together for our annual graduation ceremony.

The Phoenix Futures Annual Graduation, which is organised by our Learning and Development team, celebrates the learning achievements of both our staff and service users over the past year.

It demonstrates how the flexibility and wide range of qualifications Learning and Development offer allow learners to develop and gain qualifications to support them in their role or to progress in their personal life.

In the past year just under 80 staff and over 200 service users have completed qualifications.
