White (goods) Christmas Homeless appeal This year we are dreaming of a ‘White (goods) Christmas’ – the campaign is to provide basic new white goods to homeless people in need, over Christmas and throughout the year. Providing the basic commodities we all take for granted will enable the people we support to make a new start in life. Nugent Care need your help to make someone’s dreams come true this Christmas! Help us to make it a White Christmas by making a donation or purchasing new white goods items which can be dropped off at Nugent Care anytime from now until March 2011. Can you help us to generate 10 packs of the following white goods items? • Irons (£10) • Toasters (£15) • Kettles (£10) • Washing machines (£250) • Fridge freezers (£210) • Microwaves (£50)

Please contact Marie or Ian on 0151 261 2000 or email marie.reynolds@nugentcare.org for further information. (More information on page 2)

Help Nugent Care make Christmas 2010 a ‘white’ Christmas. I do not mean that stuff that children (and many adults) love, that we slip and slide around on, and love to see from the comfort of our warm homes. I am referring to our White (goods) Christmas Homeless appeal. Please help us give homeless people the opportunity to have the same benefits as us so that they too can have warm comfortable homes to enjoy all year round. Please read our lead feature and appeal to see how you can help. Nugent Care has directly helped and cared for over 7000 people again this past year, and also offered support to their friends and families. Our thanks go to everyone who has made that possible, staff and volunteers who give their time so generously, people who donate goods or money to us, and our statutory and voluntary partners. Let’s together try to make 2011 an even better year as we grapple with financial constraints and cutbacks. Wishing you all a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas, and all the very best for 2011. Kathleen Pitt Chief Executive

Message from the Chair of Trustees It is good that one certain experience for even more this Christmas than last finds a healing in another certain fact about this season. First, at this time of the year, those in need feel that need more severely, especially in so far as pressure grows to consume and spend often to excess with the suggestion only that can secure joy and light in Winter’s darkest days. But it is also the season when more and more people show their generosity to those in need. Nugent reminds us of need; Nugent shows us how to heal the deepest needs. It is a good time to be part of the Nugent story. Archbishop Patrick Kelly, Chair of Trustees

Clarence High School

This year’s mass with people with disabilities was a great success with over 200 people attending. Many of Nugent Care’s community groups came along as well as friends from L’Arche and Brothers of Charity.

The staff and pupils at Clarence High School run by Nugent Care were delighted to receive ‘good’ grade in its most recent Ofsted inspection for Social Care. Principal Carol Parkinson commented. “This inspection recognised the significant improvement made by the whole staff and new leadership team at Clarence High School in the past year. I am thrilled that everyone’s hard work has been recognised. This Ofsted report and the superb exam results the pupils achieved in the summer have given us the confidence to continue our journey towards ‘outstanding’ status.”

Celebrated by Bishop Tom Williams, the theme of the mass was, ‘You are my beloved’ and everybody attending brought along artwork they had created with the theme in mind to display on the altar. Special thanks to our Clubmoor group for their drama performance, our readers, singers and musicians – we look forward to doing it all again next year!

A winter home for our creepy crawly friends. Spring flowers and sunshine seem but a dim and distant memory now but on a Saturday in April a group of people with learning disabilities met in Chorley to explore new life in the woods and the gardens of Liseux Hall. One activity was to sort a collection of twigs, leaves, natural objects into various categories and discuss how other groups divided their collection, a lively discussion arose as to the whys and wherefores of the divisions! A nature trail followed with the chance to create a sculpture out of the things they found on the trail. While also building winter homes for the insects that participants took home to their gardens. A drama reflection was carried out in the afternoon of Jesus appearing to Mary Magdalen in garden which created the focus for prayer and thanksgiving for the gift of creation. This day was part of a series of Reflection days that have been on offer for the last two years. We have explored many themes in creative workshops helping us to appreciate the gift of our world and the people we are through Art & Craft, Dance, Pilgrimage, Relaxation, Yoga, Chanting, Storytelling, Caring for our Environment Visiting the Maratime Museum, Tate and a trip across the Mersey.

As always, the Volunteer Consultation Group faced a difficult task in choosing the winners from all the nominations received. Here are the successful candidates for 2010: DONNA RAFFERTY – has helped out at our community group for adults with learning disabilities in Clubmoor for over 30 years. She is well liked and respected by everybody who attends the group and is a great friend and support to a fellow volunteer at the group who is a wheelchair user.

Nugent Care held our 2010 Annual General Meeting at the prestigious Liverpool Town Hall on Friday 5th November, chaired by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Hazel Williams.

T: 01704 872 151 E: Clarencehighschool@nugentcare.org

Our guest speaker Philippa Gitlin, previously the Chief Executive of Caritas Social Action Network which has long standing links with Nugent Care through the work we have done together as champions of dignity in care, spoke about the hard times ahead and how we must pull together as a charity and as individuals to continue the work we do to support those less fortunate than us in our community.

Geel and Hitchen Court Nursing Home Based in Aigburth Liverpool, Geel & Hitchen Court provides long-term nursing care for older people living with Dementia. In October they held a Halloween Party with service users, their families and staff as a way to introduce the new manager there, Jackie Bacon.

Various staff members and volunteers received long service awards and certificates for their dedication and development of new ideas through the Ideas Factory scheme.

Jackie commented “We wanted to give service user’s relatives the opportunity to meet and greet the staff that care for their family and talk about the future plans we have for the home including the memory box scheme – designed to help people with dementia keep links to their past.”

DOT NEWTON & JAN COLBECK – have provided invaluable support to Nugent Care for the last 3 years. Their ongoing fundraising efforts have helped to support our Community Resource Unit and they round up donations for our charity shop on a weekly basis. They have also raised funds to purchase items for our Community Specialist Team such as craft materials, musical instruments and, more recently, a brand new sewing machine. CHARITY SHOP VOLUNTEERS – who have worked incredibly hard over the last 12 months to make our charity shop a great success. Their teamwork, commitment and enthusiasm have enabled Nugent Care to raise funds and our profile. ANN MOLLOY – has been a valuable volunteer at our group for adults with learning disabilities in Walton for over 35 years. Turning up every Tuesday night without fail she has helped with fundraising, organising trips out and being a great friend and support to everybody at the group. Well done to all of our winners, who do such a great job for Nugent Care and for the support and commitment that they and every other volunteer provides.

White (goods) Christmas Homeless appeal This year we are dreaming of a ‘White (goods) Christmas’ – the campaign is to provide basic new white goods to homeless people in need, over Christmas and throughout the year. Providing the basic commodities we all take for granted will enable the people we support to make a new start in life. Nugent Care need your help to make someone’s dreams come true this Christmas! Help us to make it a White Christmas by making a donation or purchasing new white goods items which can be dropped off at Nugent Care anytime from now until March 2011. Can you help us to generate 10 packs of the following white goods items? • Irons (£10) • Toasters (£15) • Kettles (£10) • Washing machines (£250) • Fridge freezers (£210) • Microwaves (£50)

Please contact Marie or Ian on 0151 261 2000 or email marie.reynolds@nugentcare.org for further information. (More information on page 2)
