This week Savera UK clients were invited to a festive party to mark the end of the year. While this was the last client event of 2022, true to Savera UK, the New Year will see more new beginnings as we host other client events.
Reihana, Savera UK’s Volunteer and Outreach Co-ordinator, kindly organised a Mediterranean fusion buffet for Savera UK’s clients to enjoy, including fresh falafel, chicken curry and a Greek salad. The lovely selection of food was coupled with a calm and welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy. This gave an opportunity for clients to get to know each other further and catch up over the Mediterranean food and delicious chocolate cake, which was heavily enjoyed by the clients’ children.
Reihana said this client drop in “provides clients with a safe space away from the hardships and stresses that they have been through, but is also a time for clients to smile and have fun”. Reihana expressed how important it is to host clients in an inclusive and safe environment, and this week’s drop in certainly provided this atmosphere.
For one client, the festive party was the first Savera UK client event they had attended. They described the atmosphere as “stunning” and was extremely “grateful and appreciative” for this space Savera UK provided. She said: “What more could you ask for”.
It is extremely valuable to hear these clients’ thoughts and it is clear that this welcoming, warm and inclusive atmosphere supplied by Savera UK has been very well received.
Client happiness, comfort and safety is at the heart of Savera UK’s work therefore hearing how grateful clients are to be given this safe space is fantastic to hear.
The Savera UK team and Savera UK Youth have had an amazing year and are excited to see what more changes and developments 2023 has to bring for the team. Savera UK would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported us in 2022, Savera UK would not be where it is without you.
Have a great festive season and a Happy New Year from all of us at Savera UK.
