Volunteers help get Leamington rehab facility ready for first guests

A GROUP of volunteers broke out the paint brushes to help a new rehabilitation facility in Leamington get ready for its first guests.

Helpers from Warwickshire County Council and their recruitment partner Pertemps Network Group spent two days decorating the new facility, while volunteers from other organisations have supported too.

The rehabilitation centre is due to open in early July, with eight beds for individuals recovering from drug or alcohol addictions.

The volunteers were matched with the New Chapters project through Make Good Grow, an organisation supporting charities in Warwickshire, linking them with organisations who want to support local causes.




Leanne Pike, Pertemps client services manager, said: “As a business, we always do what we can to support the communities in which we work. This is another example of that.

“It was fantastic to be able to work with Make Good Grow and Warwickshire County Council to help with this important new project in Leamington.


“We look forward to helping on other programmes in the coming months.”

Bal Jacob, WCC’s director for workforce and local services, added: “We work closely in partnership with Pertemps and we were delighted to have this opportunity to grow and develop our relationship with them while supporting the wider community and the work of New Chapters.”
