Emma Blackburn, Administrator and Support Worker
I am Oakwood’s Administrator. In brief my job is making sure we can help as many people as possible as quickly as possible! However, the part of my job I love the most is being the Support Worker for the Oakwood supported meals programme. At least once a week I bring some art and crafts supplies and a crazy idea of what we are going to make that day. Some activities have been a great success while others were not repeated! I really enjoy working with the group as we all explore our creativity, have fun and decorate the room with some of our larger pieces of art. We have made a number of works exploring our own mental health struggles and focusing on inspirational quotes. Some of our pieces were on display to the public at Edgeley Library in 2018.
