It was recently announced that the operation of the Day Centre in Haddenham, previously run by the Red Cross, will be taken over by the Fremantle Trust, with existing staff transferring to that organisation. The change in the way services are operated in the area is part of a modernisation programme agreed by Buckinghamshire County Council in March 2011.
The Fremantle Trust is a registered charity and not-for-profit business providing care and support services for older people and adults with a learning disability. The Trust works for the people who use their services.
For those people currently using the Red Cross day centre services, The Fremantle Trust will be working alongside the current staff team to ensure they can continue to benefit from these valued resources.
Carole Sawyers, chief executive of The Fremantle Trust, commented: "We will be working closely with Buckinghamshire County Council and the existing Red Cross staff at the Hadddenham site to ensure a smooth transition in the weeks ahead.
"We are keen to enhance the existing service offered so the centre in Haddenham can realise its full potential and meet the changing needs of people in the local community."
All services are based on the core values of choice and control, privacy, dignity, independence, rights and fulfilment.
