What’s happening at Phoenix’s Sheffield Residential Service?

CQC Inspection rates us Good in all areas

We’re delighted to be able to say that our latest CQC report rates us as Good in all areas. Our report can viewed on the CQC website here  https://www.cqc.org.uk/location/1-121816428

We’re determined to keep pushing forward and developing our practice to deliver ever better outcomes for our residents and funders.

Purple Camel

CQC recognised our Purple Camel project as Outstanding Practice. Purple Camel is a social enterprise project that has seen us redevelop our garden area to create a community garden to grow fruit and vegetables. With support from across the community we’ve been digging soil, planting seeds and nurturing the fresh produce that will used in our kitchens, and over time, in the wider community. Residents can learn about horticulture and environmental sustainability. We welcome visitors to both see, and get involved, in this innovative project.

Voyage of Recovery and Recovery Games

We believe in supporting and creating recovery in the community, with visible recovery role models. It’s important to us to help create new and healthy opportunities for our residents to learn, develop and connect. During September 2018 10 of our residents sailed to the Isle of Wight and spent 5 days and nights at sea where they learnt new skills and worked together as a team. Whilst in August two teams of 12 residents took part in the Recovery Games. 30 teams from across the UK competed and came together to celebrate recovery and have fun together.

Living spaces project

Across all our residential services we’re investing in our living spaces. For Sheffield this means creating an environment that is homely, comfortable and therapeutic. The project is led by our Chief Exec Karen with input from staff and residents. Over the next 12 months we’ll be transforming the service to create one of the best environments for recovery in the country.
