Headway House Day Centre

maggieMaggie Taylor started working at Headway House in 2005 for one day a week as a sessional tutor in the workshop.  Since then she has become a member of staff doing woodwork and some outreach work.
Before coming to Headway she worked as a Design and I.T. technician in an Upper School and has also had experience of working in an art shop, window dressing and running a Toy Library.  She also worked at an F.E.College with Special needs students. “I enjoy working with members and feel that my job enables me to help build their self esteem and independence alongside developing skills in woodwork and communication.”
Val Thurman has worked at Headway House since 2002 as a much valued cleaner.  Before coming to Headway she worked for the NHS for a number of years until her retirement but felt that she didn’t want to give up work completely so comes to us each morning for 2 hours before members arrive.
The house is very well looked after because Val takes a pride in her work and nothing is too much trouble for her.  She always gives us a warm welcome when we come in and this gives us a chance to catch up on any problems she’s experiencing with her work.
When she takes annual leave we all miss seeing her.  It’s strange to come in to an empty building and we all agree she’s an essential part of the Headway team.
