Head Office MacMillan Morning

Like every year, we participate and put on a coffee morning full of treats and games in aid of Cancer Support.

Thank you to everyone who donated a cake and spare change for this fantastic cause!

Thank you to everyone who popped their spare change into the tins provided. We are thrilled to announce we have a total of £100 from your generous donations towards The UK Sepsis Trust, to help improve diagnosis and treatment for sepsis patients in the future.
We have had so much support from staff, service users and the community - who have all come together to raise awareness for such an important cause.
We had a nice visit from Chris at Blenheim House Care Home, who came to show his support too!

World Mental Health Day!🌎
It's an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. We have advice posters (please feel free to print if needed) with information on who & where to contact if you need to talk to somebody about your mental health or are concerned for a friend or family member. You can find these by clicking the button below the poster.
At Autonomy Care Group, we have dedicated full time Mental Health First Aiders, who are there for you when you need them in our adult residential services.

Follow our Marketing Coordinator's journey to Everest!

Namaste from Autonomy Care Group, as their Marketing Coordinator Jen returns from Everest!
“It’s hard for me to articulate where I’ve been this last month. It all started with a leap of faith to board the notoriously dangerous mountain plane to Lukla, Nepal. From there the trek commenced and I was in awe of the blue pine forests, blinded by countless dust paths, tackled snow blizzards – alongside conquering my fear of heights on suspension bridges. With all the challenges of the trek, comes the highest reward!"
Jen proudly waved Autonomy Care Group’s flag at Everest Base Camp on 1st May!
"There’s a reason the words ‘Base Camp’ mean so much, and if it was easy everyone would do it. It’s true that the people make an experience, rather than what you set out to see in the first place. I was blessed with my team of 11 others and of course the tour guides; all strangers to begin with and now friends for life. We pushed each another when needed and we all made sure everyone made it to Base Camp safely. I feel truly humbled to have gone over our original target of £3K for Stepping Stones charity, and I would love to see how far we can go now I’m home and achieved what we set out to do!”
“On the harder days ascending after hours of trekking, I just had the charity at the forefront of my mind to help me reach the next checkpoint. It was the most amazing experience and the biggest achievement of my life so far."

Thank you from everyone at Autonomy Care Group for their continued support.
