Further Funding Secured

WCOMC

CENTRED SOUL are an awesome not-for-profit organisation & social enterprise, founded by Rosemary Deans.

There is a lack of specialist support in over 80% of NI to help combat the high levels of perinatal mental health issues and challenges around birth trauma. This has caused a communication and connection barrier for people experiencing these issues.

There is another barrier, caused by the ever present stigma that accompanies living with mental health issues and the lack of essential information on what is ‘perinatal’.

Through TiR we secured funding to develop a pilot web app for Centred Soul to foster communication between these people, enabling them to connect and communicate amongst one another and help reduce this stigma.

At an event in the Guild Hall, Derry on 11th June 2019 we were delighted to secure further funding to bring this game changing app to the next level. News article here.

1-year old

Induction

As we approach the end of DAMGEO year one, it has been one hell of a ride and long may it continue.

If you have ever thought of becoming self-employed, give it a god damn go, it is one of the most empowering career/life choices you can make. Challenges have been a plenty, the reason for going self-employed initially (a cool piece of work with Facebook did not quite work out). First lesson, not everything works out, get over it quick.

However, things happen for a reason, a year later we can call Acumenis, Moy Park, uHub, Children’s Law Centre, Capita, Volunteer Now, Severfield, ALMAC, Kith & Kin as live clients with exciting projects complete, ongoing and importantly repeat business. Second lesson, do the best job you can do and you will win other (better) business.

Thanks to all the people who have provided boundless support, we know who they are and will do everything to support them in the future. Third lesson, quickly learn who the good guys/gals are.

We genuinely cannot wait until the next year. The best bit of advice we were given was ‘concentrate on your customers and staff, not nominating yourself for awards’, has worked for us.

25/10/2018


Solutions are go

Real Induction Digitisation

Damgeo

It still stuns me that when you mention ‘digital learning innovation’, experts in the field are not afraid for some reason to shout out ‘mobile learning’, ‘microlearning’, ‘gamification’ (perhaps the most horrible word in the English language, closely followed by ‘pedagogy’, yuck). These should be a given in 2018, come on, the mobile phone has been in widespread use for approaching a quarter of a century for goodness sake.

In our recent work with organisations we are designing Induction and wider staff development around all the benefits that digitisation has brought to the learning table, a sample of the timeline and components are previewed in this INDUCTION TIMELINE.

17/01/2018


Induction Enquiries

Damgeo

3/5 of our recent enquiries have been about the digitisation of staff induction and how it can be designed to actually impact new starts; get them job ready fast; and actually shape their employment behaviours.

Not just be a distant memory by week 3 and something you leave on while you make a coffee. Check out our INDUCTION EXPLAINER for more info.
