Children's Service Manager Jayne Buckingham was thrilled to hear about the funding, "This means we can continue to have a Specialist Play Lead in post. The role is vital in supporting our children to have quality play experiences that are gaged towards the needs of the children we support."
The role of Specialist Play Lead means that children can access play through a multitude of ways. Play is essential for young people to thrive and develop fundamental skills for life.
We are pleased to welcome staff member Charlie into the role of Specialist Play Lead. Charlie has a background in the arts and is excited to use some of her skills in this field to support play schemes. Charlie said; "I began my Hamlet journey as a support worker on Short Breaks, wanting to make a difference to the lives of the children and families that access our service. What I love most about The Hamlet is the vibrant atmosphere and watching our amazing children thrive with the support and provision we provide! I am so excited to be able to take on this new role of Specialist Play Lead."
