The reception area at our Weaver’s Croft site, in Stroud, has been refurbished, thanks to funding from Stroud Hospitals League of Friends.
The waiting area has been brightened up, new seats have been put in place and the reception desk itself has been replaced with a brand new one.
Jonathan Thomas, ²gether’s Community Services Manager for Stroud Locality, said the work meant that visitors to the site would now receive a much warmer welcome.
“We are very grateful to the League of Friends for funding our new reception area,” Jonathan explained.
“Our former reception area was serviceable, but this work has made it far brighter and a more welcoming place for service users, carers and staff alike.
“This is the latest in a long line of projects funded by the League of Friends at Weaver’s Croft, and we already have plans to carry out more work, with their support, to further improve the building.”
Weaver’s Croft, in Field Road, Stroud, is home to a variety of ²gether’s teams, including services for people with Learning Disabilities and older adults with dementia.
Dr Roy Lamb, President of Stroud Hospitals League of Friends, said: “As a former medical director of Severn NHS Trust I have half a century of experience working with mental health services.
“I am so pleased to have seen the developments in mental health services over the years, and very pleased we have been able to play a part in this.”
