Hello! My name is……Sara. I am the new Social Prescribing Community Development Officer and at the time of writing I have worked for Qube for five hours!
Before working for Qube I was a keyworker at Treflach Farm (a scheme supporting young people in crisis).
Before that I worked in environmental education and community development. I’ve worked for Shropshire Wildlife Trust, the National Trust at Attingham and the Field Studies Council. I’m teaching natural history online at the moment – I’m a proper geek and proud of it too!
I will work closely with……Michelle, Laurel (get well soon Laurel!), Bella and Sophie at Qube, plus Social Prescribing partners across Shropshire.
The things I am looking forward most to in my role are…meeting new people, joining the fantastic team at Qube, plus supporting and developing the Social Prescribing network. It’s a valuable activity that will contribute to Qube’s work, making a real difference to people’s lives in Shropshire.
I’ve going to make working from home fun by taking one day at a time and celebrating the little everyday things. I regularly get up and dance round the lounge with my kids and have some cracking music and podcasts to listen to.
The first thing I’m going to do when things get back to ‘normal’ is……hug everyone, starting with my parents – I miss them!
Oh, and my favourite biscuit of all times is……a fresh home-baked Cranks country biscuit…(but dark choc Hobnobs come a close second, followed by Rich Tea, then Custard Creams…I could go on)
And, my top three lock-down songs are (at the moment- this changes daily!)
1. Starman – David Bowie
2. Give me a Kiss to Build a Dream On – Louis Armstrong
3. Moon River – Audrey Hepburn
