Lucy’s August blog in her own words - baked treats, outings and looking to the future

Sweet Treats – Home and Away

I baked a nutella muffin and it was delicious. I also cooked chocolate rice krispies and it
was delicious. I also baked a Chocolate Cookie and Plain Cookie and it was delicious.
I went out and went on trips with my mum around Devon. I haven’t been to Buckfast
Abbey since Christmas 2019 and it was nice to be back. I have been to Stover Country
Park which is near Newton Abbot and I haven’t been there and it was nice. I have been
to Brixham because I haven’t been there for many years and I went to a cafe called The
Curious Kitchen and I love it, I love all types of donuts because it was tasty and

This month, it’s eat out and help out and I enjoy it because it was so cheap and also it
will get half-price. I went some of the cafes at Widecombe on the Moor, Bayard’s
Kitchen and Coffee #1.

Exploring Exeter

I went to Exeter with my mum and then the following week I went there by myself for the
Exeter Street Arts Festival, I have never been there before. Before the next 2 days
Exeter Street Arts Festival was Cancelled. I was really gutted about the festival. This
festival has been really popular because they all like the arts, music and the streets. I
went to Exeter by myself and I am so happy and pleased and I feel safe, I went for an
explore around the area.

My Future – hopes and worries

My enabler went to my house to talk about my work and my career to see what is going
on. I went to a cafe in Newton Abbot called “No Limits”. It’s a really good cafe and I
have spoken to one of the members of staff and hopefully to get work experience in the

I will definitely be involved and joining Breaking the Barrier at LifeWorks so I have
shared my facebook to donate to me.

I have a certificate from Community Team at space* and I am so proud of myself.
I am currently in training at voyc and I am learning about Young People’s Mental
Health.. I have met all the people from the other organizations and they are all lovely
and friendly. We have good training to talk about Mental Health, we have teamwork
activity behaviours. Talking about young people’s mental health, mindfulness, trauma
and concerns. I really enjoy this training because it helps me as a youth worker.
I just don’t feel comfortable about wearing a mask when I’m in the shops and public
transport and also, I can’t see people’s faces at the moment, I just hate wearing face
mask because sometimes I have difficulty breathing for a bit and feel a bit sick.

Happy Birthday Robins!

Happy Birthday Robins!

As Robins turns 21 we look back to its beginnings and what makes is so special

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
