The Anchor is taking on new staff and new trainees. We refer to the people we work with as ‘trainees’ rather than service users, in order to help reflect the type of work we are doing with the trainee; they are active participants in the building of their lives and we want to encourage them to work hard to achieve what they want from life!

One of the five values we work towards is healthy relationships; we make it our goal to address conflict as (or even before) it arises and teach individuals the skills to sort out any difficulties they may have with somebody, assertively and respectfully. 

We have a trainee who is celebrating nearly a month of not self harming or attempting suicide… this takes effort, determination and self control, so this trainee should be massively proud of themselves!
