For the past four weeks we’ve had two amazing 3rd year medical students from the University of Sheffield on placement with us.
As part of their extensive course, they are required to complete a four-week placement to see the wider implications of health care in our local community.
They have been absolutely wonderful and flexible They have developed tools to help MIN show evidence of our impact and help us monitor progress. This will give us a greater understanding into the changes MIN is making to people’s lives and the difference we are making in the community. We can also use the information to prove to funders and grant-makers that we make a real impact.
They’ve also had the lovely idea of creating a resource package for mums with lots of handy and helpful links, providing them with even more empowering information and advice.
They’ve been a great addition to our team of passionate volunteers, and we appreciate how flexible they’ve been, especially considering that they started on in the middle of our moving process. They were very supportive and helped us pack and unpack!
Today we also say goodbye to our student from Tapton School who has been with us from September. She is hoping to study a midwifery course so got in touch to gain experience with Mums in Need.
She volunteered with us once a week and has been an absolute pleasure. Her can-do attitude and sparkly personality have been very welcome here. We’ve been very grateful that she’s been so flexible and has turned her hand to many a task, including being part of our promotional material, writing FAQs for our website, setting up our bric-a-brac sales area, sorting donations and so much more!
We know she’ll do very well in the future and are excited to see her achieve her dreams!
We appreciate all they’ve done for us and hope they’ve enjoyed being here as much as we’ve enjoyed having them. We hope their time here has been informative, useful and enjoyable. We hope they keep in touch and wish them all the best for the future.
