We have excellent training facilities within the organisation, committed to ensuring quality is taught, delivered and audited on a regular basis.  

The Lonsdale & St Georges training team are all highly qualified to teach staff of all disciplines and we support staff to achieve personal goals and qualifications, which are varied, ranging from QCF level 2 through to degree level.

On hand our clinical team of experts offer support including: qualified trainers, clinical nurse manager, health & safety manager / complex care manager and a team of quality supervisors.

In addition, Risedale, in conjunction with the University of Cumbria, are training staff in the role of assistant practitioners, as well as developing new roles for example: nursing support roles and funding staff to registered nurse status with the Open University.

All residents have access to a wide range of facilities both internally and externally, some of which include: in-house activity co-ordinators (who arrange in house therapy based activities), as well as external trips / meals out etc.

All activities are planned with individuals and, where appropriate, families and significant others.

It is our belief that all staff regardless of disciplines can participate in activities as part of the daily care provision and family and friends are welcome to attend social events.

It is a collective responsibility for all staff to see this as integral to their role.
