INTRODUCTION: ABOUT US
Trips ’n’ Treats is jointly managed by Penny McCloskey and Theresa Snow who have many years experience between them working in the care sector.
The past 20 years have been spent working in the learning disability sector supporting adults with learning disabilities to lead fulfilling lives, promoting independence whilst maintaining a duty of care towards them. Trips’n’Treat subscribe to the Person Centred Planning approach when supporting service users.
“There seemed to us both to be a need for people with learning disabilities to enjoy the nicer things in life that most of us take for granted. Although support is provided to service users to do every day things such as shopping trips, arranging employment and college courses often there is not the time and resources to take the service users to visit museums, parks, seaside resorts, the list of places is endless”. –Penny McCloskey
“At Trips ‘n’ Treats we can provide the full support that is needed so that the service users can choose when and where they would like to go.”–Theresa Snow
Here at Trips’n’Treats we have a full team of 14 staff waiting to meet you which is made up of Recreational Support workers, a Senior Support Worker and Lynne Hubbard who is our Team Leader and leads the Team out in the field while Penny and Theresa manage the service.
We also have 2 office administration staff Wendy and Amanda who help us keep the wheels in motion.
