‘Aspire’ is organised by Plymouth City Council and
took place on Monday 28th September at the Plymouth Guildhall. Aimed at parents, carers and young people with learning
disabilities, the event allowed them time to find out more about the options open to them after they turn 16.
Our Plymouth-based adviser Lisa said, "We really enjoyed chatting to everyone that attended Aspire
at the Plymouth Guildhall. It was great to see so many young people, parents carers and
school staff. Aspire is growing every year with more schools and organisations attending. The
event was fantastic with a really positive buzz!"
CSW Group has always seen the crucial importance of partnership working.
On Monday 7th September our Exeter office opened its doors to welcome agencies from across the City to find out about the
work we are involved in and the help we can offer.
The attendees included representatives from Elite Training, The Princes Trust,
Exeter College, Positive Pathways, Hitz, Exeter YMCA, Jobcentre Plus, Skills Group, PGL, PLUSS, and Exeter Chiefs .
