Westward Care: Staff host a ‘Garden Party’ to celebrate name change
Westward Care, our service based in Attleborough, hosted a Garden Party last week to celebrate their re brand which saw the service have a new name and logo.
The change reflects a very exciting time at Westward, with the implementation of a new management team and a focus on continuing to provide high quality person centered care to vulnerable people in the area.
The new logo sees the addition of four leaves, each reflecting a core value (Passion, Empowerment, Respect and Collaboration) that we follow in order to achieve our aim of being the best and most trusted care provider in the region.
The Garden Party was organised to be the perfect opportunity to do the launch, inviting staff and the people we support from both The Barnes and The Farms for an afternoon of fun and games!
Staff did an amazing job in organising stalls for the whole day, including:
“We felt this was a good time to freshen things up with a new logo, colours and new site names to really set ourselves up to push on as a refreshed business,” Jason Perry, Regional Operations Manager.
During the company name change, NCG and Westward believed changing the name of the two properties, Westward Farms and Westward Barnes, would also benefit from a change in name and direction.
We created a competition that allows Westward Care staff themselves to give ideas for a new name for their properties, with the winners receiving a signed certificate from NCG and vouchers from Love2Shop.
“We asked staff to enter a competition which allowed them to choose our new location names, which we felt was really intact with how we are moving forward, giving staff the opportunity to take ownership on where Westward should go next,” Jason Perry.
Staff were given two weeks to submit potential names of the locations, with our judges voting on on which name should be the winner.
After some great entries, our judges decided on:
Andy Mace, Support Worker, had submitted 8 Acres as the new name and was the recipient of the Love2Shop Voucher and certificate.
Whilst the whole staff at The Farms, had submitted The Willows as their idea, Charlotte Rodman and Kerry Milman, both Support Workers, collected the prize for the team.
The Garden Party was a great success for everyone involved, with a brilliant turnout from our staff and the people we support, who all really enjoyed themselves and would like to host events similar to this in the future.
“Everyone had a great time, with people taking part in the games and raffle competition, we are really excited for potential at Westward Care and are happy to see how our staff have worked together to create this event,” Laura Collard, Area Operations Manager.
National Care Group would like to congratulate all the competition winners and are delighted to for everyone at Westward Care for how they have been able to manage the changes been made and how excited they are for the future direction at their service.
