A team from Mosaic Clubhouse based in the UK visited Clubhouse Gibraltar on a post training site visit. The main purpose was to monitor the progress made by Clubhouse Gibraltar on the issues identified in their training action plan completed on colleague training in November 2014.
The visiting team from Mosaic Clubhouse were clearly impressed that despite the challenges currently presented by the building works Clubhouse Gibraltar is doing a sterling job of pulling its whole Clubhouse community together in the important task of running the Clubhouse.
They expressed that Clubhouse Gibraltar, “despite the challenges with the building, had managed to convey a clear sense of dignity and optimism; unit work is displayed in a way that is accessible, attractive, and professional. “
They also observed that the whole Clubhouse Gibraltar Community demonstrated an impressive understanding and commitment to the Clubhouse Model which was clearly demonstrated by the way they expressed their Clubhouse experience.
This input will help Clubhouse Gibraltar to start the process of the International Clubhouse Accreditation which is hoped will happen once they are established in the new premises.
Whilst in Gibraltar, the opportunity was also used to have a full day’s training where the Mosaic Clubhouse team were able to share its knowledge and experience of the Recovery Star with Clubhouse Gibraltar in order to help promote the recovery journey of the members in Gibraltar.
Without the on-going support of the Kusuma Trust the training and on site visit would not have taken place.
