CANS Corrymeela Staff Residential - Feb 2023
A note from Dr Linda Agnew on Corrymeela:
"In January 2023, CANS arranged more opportunities for the Board to engage with and get to know and support counsellors. We met for a picnic in Ormeau Park in August 2023 and following conversations at this event arranged an overnight residential in Corrymeela Residential Centre in Ballycastle in February 2023.
The purpose of this residential was for rest and self care, team building, and getting to get to know each other. Evaluation showed that this opportunity was welcomed and beneficial for the 16 participants and we hope to repeat this experience in the near future. Our Board and Counsellors see the need for CANS in their work and in their own communities. Our project on BAME mental health and emotional wellbeing, Hearing Our Needs, has confirmed these observations. As we look forward, we are embedding ongoing changes in structure and technology so we can build on the growth of the past years and continue to develop the work of CANS."
