Shadowing experience with the Cyrenians – 22nd October 2019

Sirea Jabar (Partnership & Training officer) & Hayley Fisher (Communications officer) from Target Housing visited the Cyrenian project in Edinburgh.

We had a really great opportunity through the shadowing fund to visit the Cyrenians in Edinburgh.

The initial aim of our visit was to look at how the Cyrenians look after the wellbeing of their staff. Our visit however, allowed us to see how the Cyrenians have created an ethos, an environment and culture in which they can build the resilience of their staff and clients.
