Meet three special women from Vocational Support in Liverpool!
Amy McConville is 28 years old, and is supported by our Vocational Support Service in Liverpool.
Amy has always been a people person, and was overjoyed in 2010 when she landed her dream job at Costa Coffee at a local Retail Park.
Since then, Amy’s progress has been phenomenal – she’s blossomed with confidence, skill and a passion for customer service. Her outstanding rapport with her customers has been recognised by everyone around her… not to mention she makes a mean Cappuccino!
Her contribution to the team hasn’t gone unnoticed by her managers, who told us: “We love having Amy as part of our team. Not only is she hard working, she is an absolute star who never fails to bring a smile to everyone's face!”
Louise Lamkin is Vocational Support’s very own IT whiz, and has recently found her perfect placement at one of Community Integrated Care’s Extra Care Services, Bluebell Park.
Working in a care environment has come naturally to Louise, who also helps support her Grandparents at home.
Louise has bags of enthusiasm and drive in everything she does, whether it’s helping out with staff training or supporting the team with rotas and care plans, it’s done with a smile.
Not content with all of this, she even finds time to write poetry and stories, and is planning a big birthday bash for her 30th later this year.
Die-hard Liverpool fan Katie Bell has put her sporting allegiances to one side to take up a role at Everton in the Community! Katie is a key member of the team, who helps out at the club’s dementia support group.
Her work has even won her a couple of Everton in the Community Awards, in recognition of her commitment and great attitude. She’s known for making a great cup of tea and making the guests feel really welcome and at ease. Katie’s role means that she regularly meets legendary Everton players, and loves nothing more than telling them all about her love of the football team down the road!
Katie likes to keep herself busy, and also spends several days a week volunteering for the British Heart Foundation and Barnados in their local shops. This all goes to show Katie’s dedication to volunteering and helping others, while putting her skills to great use.
