"The Payroll department not only deal with the on-going payroll processing of the Appleby Westward staff," (says Clare Parkin, Appleby Westward's Payroll Co-ordinator) they also work with a large number of our retailers who outsource their payroll to Appleby Westward'.
On Tuesday 29 May the Lord Mayor of Plymouth, Michael Wright, launched the new NSPCC Service Centre based in the heart of the city. The services offer cutting edge child protection programmes.
The centre is one of forty across the UK which will deliver a range of support for children and families. Services delivered from the NSPCC centre will focus on working with children, young people and families to prevent sexual abuse. The new services delivered from the centre are:
* Letting the Future in which provides therapeutic services to help children move on with their lives after sexual abuse
* Change for Good - a structured
treatment programme for boys aged over 12 who behave in a way that is sexually harmful.
* Assessing the Risk: Protecting the Child - a guide that helps professionals assess the risk posed by abusers who have not been charged or convicted of any offence.
Service Centre Manager, Jacky Moon, said: “The NSPCC has operated services in Plymouth for many years and we’re very pleased to be able to continue that commitment. The organisation makes a huge difference to the lives of children across the UK and the centre will help us to expand our work and pioneer new approaches to address the child protection problems facing local children.
The Lord Mayor of Plymouth, Michael Wright, said: “I fully support the work of the NSPCC and these new initiatives. Too many children have had their lives ruined and find it hard to move on and the provision of the therapeutic services will prove to be very helpful.”
The NSPCC and Childline relies on the generosity of members of the public and business supporters for the majority of its income.
The majority of the funds that Appleby Westward and our stores raise will be spent within the South West. Local Fundraising for a Local charity.
