Pamper Day - A Relaxing Start to our Talent Match Roadshow

The Talent Match team at Groundwork in South Yorkshire launched their Barnsley roadshow with a ‘pamper day’ in Bolton-on-Dearne. The busy event invited young people to relax and open their minds to a new beginning - be it a new job or a new course of education or training.

The pamper day was kindly hosted at Action for Children’s Dearne Community Children’s Centre.  Manicures, make-up and hand massages were provided by beauty students and staff from the Barnsley College. Patrick Heath, a holistic therapist from Elements Body Work, offered complimentary treatments including taster massage sessions, stress recognition advice and mindfulness techniques.

After members of the community had discussions with coaches about the programme and enjoyed some pampering, a buffet was served. A lucky winner in the 'guess the price of the shopping' competition took away a basket brimming with healthy groceries. All volunteers and students took away a gift bag to thank them for participating.

Throughout the day, our team and Action for Children staff were on hand to tell young people how to access the package of personal support and coaching. Of the crowd that came through the doors we had 7 young people not in education, employment or training sign up to Talent Match. Their individual coaching appointments have already begun, with support offered for the young person to decide their own action plan for a fresh start.

Groundwork Talent Match coach Jason Mounsey said, “The pamper day provided a relaxed environment, resulting in the ability for attendees to  participate in treatments, relax afterwards and discuss the benefits of Talent Match for family members".
