Excellence

"Vibrance go to great lengths to communicate with their staff. I've worked in care for many years and I know there are few organisations that make such efforts."

Arthur Gwillam, Blue Skies Project Deputy Manager

We're not ones to show off. But we're proud of where we are today, and know that we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for our long-standing commitment to excellence. And we're delighted that others have noticed too, resulting in a growing string of awards to our name.

Multimedia Graduation Event

This fantastic event took place in Witham on 24th September 2009 and marked the completion of the first phase of a fruitful partnership between Vibrance and the Rix Centre, at the University of East London.

On the day, eight of the people who use our services (one from each of our Essex services) presented their multimedia Person Centred Plan to an invited audience. Their plans were 20 minute presentations made up of photos, videos and music. And by showing the rich and valued lives they lead in this powerful way, it was a very emotional and proud day for all.

All eight also received graduation certificates from the University, as did the nine Staff Champions. If you'd like to find out more, visit www.rixcentre.org
