People & Culture Update
It’s been an exciting term for People & Culture, starting September off in style with a brilliant Staff Day. Thank you again so much to everyone who was able to make it. It was so good to be able to start the year well together and to hear from you how we can work together to make Fegans ‘healthy’ and a great place to work.
The biggest changes introduced so far in response to the staff day are Appraisals and this edition of You Speak!
I really look forward to hearing how you find your appraisals this coming term, we hope that they will be a really helpful opportunity for you to feel regularly supported and heard.
We are very excited that this You Speak is now enabling 2 way communication. Please do leave your comments and thoughts beneath the articles. This is the first step on the path to having a Fegans intranet and we need your input. Thank you so much to David for making this possible and to Chelin for making You Speak happen! Once again we so value your input through articles and stories, please do send them in!

Our Parent support team has grown tremendously with Rebecca working over in Dartford and an incredible raft of volunteers…Nicola, Susie, Julie, Leonie, Ella, Susi, Jenny and Jodie…Welcome!
We have some amazing new members of Buttons team, Lisa and Heidi, as well as Amii volunteering with the team.
Lastly in the Tunbridge Wells office it is wonderful to be able to welcome Louise taking on the receptionist and administrator role. If you have rung in recently I’m sure you will have heard her friendly and welcoming voice!
Sadly we are saying our goodbyes to Marj and Frances in Thanet. They have been incredible members of the team and we are so sad to see them go.
We will also soon be saying goodbye to Lynn a Parent Support Worker in Tunbridge Wells, Liz, a counsellor in Tunbridge Wells, Melissa, a counsellor in Lambeth and Aly who has been playing a dual role of counsellor and administrator in East Sussex.
