Turning Point's Waltham Forest service has been celebrated for 'good partnership working' by the Waltham Forest Adult learning service at their 'Celebration of Learners Achievements event.

Services at Turning Point Waltham Forest are tailored to meet the needs of the individual to address not only drug and alcohol misuse but other areas of the individuals' life which may impact on their substance use. The service offers photography, IT skills and Back to Work classes with tutors from the Adult Learning Service. The photography class recently displayed their work in an exhibition as part of the E17 Art trail.

Lucy Kennedy, Operations Manager for Turning Point Waltham Forest said;

"We are delighted to receive this certificate. Working in partnership is central to our service delivery and we look forward to continuing to work with others locally to support people through their recovery journey."

Feroz Khan, Outreach Officer for Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service said;

"Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service has been working in partnership with Turning Point for several years now, assisting service users towards education, training and employment. Without the ongoing support and feedback from the staff at Turning Point we would not be able to deliver the range of courses and ensure regular attendance with amazing learner outcomes. In recognition of the great efforts the staff at Turning Point provide towards the success of the partnership, WF Adult Learning Service was pleased to award the Certificate of Achievement to Turning Point."
