This is a little musical video from the Outreach Programme South, (Tracey, Sally ,Mat, Trish, Larry, Marie, Catherine Rebecca and Anne Kavanagh) that the service users and families of the south outreach programme poured their hearts and hard work into. Thank you all for all your support in having a great outreach programme which brought along a lot of learning, communication, fun and growth.
Recently received documents from the HSE around resumption of Adult Disability Services – Framework for the Resumption of Adult Disability Day Services and Reshaping of Disability Services for 2020 and Beyond, have been most informative and very useful to us. Sunbeam had already begun its planning for post Covid-19 services.
We have started reconfiguring our structures – where services are delivered from, who and how they will be delivered and what amount of services are possible given the distancing requirements we will be required to adhere to. Our team of professionals have stepped up to the immediate challenges imposed since March of this year and they are once again stepping up to the plate for the new reality of post Covid-19 life in residential, day and respite services.
Our clients are central to all our thoughts and we are working hard to ensure they will receive the best supports we can deliver in best way we can.
Thank you to all our valued clients, supporters, staff, HSE and HIQA, it really is very much appreciated.

Ed really wanted to say a brief message of courage during lockdown.
He also wanted to share one of his favourite songs.

I got a lovely award this year for my 10-year celebration working in Tesco.
I work with my colleagues facing off items on the shelf and then I put empty boxes from the shelf into a baler, this flattens them down. I have made a lot of friends over the years working in Tesco and I enjoy my job.
I got a lovely cake, balloons, bangers and my boss Andy took a few pictures of me with my colleagues. I also got a lovely badge to celebrate my 10th year. I will start wearing my badge on my uniform when I go back to work next week. My parents are happy for me and I really like my job in Tesco.
We think Stephen did a great job to sign along to Katy Perry’s song ROAR while in lion costume.
