The health & social care department have a reputable link with local care homes in Lichfield, in particular The Spires.

Following an awful few months in the care home sector due to Covid 19, the health & social care students volunteered to give something back to the residents who had been unable to see friends and family during the pandemic.

All students across key stage 4 and key stage 5 on the course created Valentine’s Day cards for local care home residents. The aim was for students to design a creative card to be filled with special memories made up of poems or pictures that would make the residents smile.

The residents loved the cards and we are so proud of our students for taking part in this worthwhile activity.

Kim Fallows, Subject Leaders, said: ‘Our students have wholeheartedly committed themselves to this project. They have gone above and beyond and exceeded all our expectations using their creative and artistic skills to give back to the community. ‘
