Workshop 1 was a huge success, here’s a link to the photos and below are Workshop 1 achievements:
 
Our members’ mental heath improved on average by 40% within 3 hours
 
We recorded how our members felt when they arrived and when they left. We asked them to pick a figure between 0 and 10; 0 feeling rubbish and 10 feeling awesome. The average score (from completed workbooks received) when members arrived was 6 out of 10. The average score just before leaving was 10 out of 10 (being excellent). We have captured written evidence of this. We’ve also received comments from parents regarding the significant positive change they had witnessed in their loved ones. 
 
Happy parents, happy members, new friendships …
 
One parent said: “What an amazing team! Thank you to all the Talent Within You volunteers! You have done an incredible job to get Ollie excited about anything other than a computer game. Huge appreciation. I was shocked when he agreed to give it a go … but proud that he came, and under his own steam, and had such a brilliant time”
 
Donna Sparsis, parent, said: “Thank you! The boys really enjoyed it …. Hugo got a lot from the McLaren lady… she is dyslexic too. Well done!”
 
Another parent, said (verbally): “Thank you! My daughter is really shy but she has made a new friend here today.”

Our inspirational speakers for Workshop 2 are:
 
Andy Thom, retired police diver: (see photos by following this link)
 
Andy turned his passion for scuba diving into an exciting job as a police diver; he used to retrieve street crime weapons and other objects which are used as evidence in the courts to catch criminals and such like. The waters Andy dived in were so murky that Andy and his colleagues had to rely on touch to locate objects. And when the waters are so cold that your hands are numb, how can you feel anything? Andy will explain how … You will learn that you can turn any interest into the job of your dreams. Imagine enjoying your hobby every day for the rest of your life. We will teach you how! Andy will be bringing his diving equipment and you will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to retrieve items in cold, wet, waters without getting wet (well not very wet!).
