Hello Friends

We hope you are well. It's full steam ahead for us at Lifelites as we're preparing for our visits to hospices across the British Isles to install and train staff on the fantastic new packages of equipment this year. 

Read on for latest news, training materials and support for you with your magical Lifelites technology.
Annual Lifelites Children’s Hospice Conference 2016
You are invited to...

Lifelites #magicaltechnology children’s hospice Conference 2016

Date: Thursday 19th May - 10am to 3.00 pm

 Ibis Birmingham Centre New Street, 21 Ladywell Walk, Birmingham, B5 4ST 
We are looking forward to this years annual conference where have invited staff from hospices due to receive a new or updated package of Lifelites magical technology in 2017 to attend. The free conference gives staff a chance to find out about the latest assistive and inclusive technologies, to feedback to Lifelites on the impact of the equipment you have received in the past and what your needs might be going forward. It's also a great opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues from other children’s hospices.

There are a few spare places available so we're inviting children's hospice staff from across the British Isles to attend. If you would like to attend please email admin@lifelites.org or call us on 0207 440 4200  by the 11th May 2016.

Lifelites is recruiting!
We are delighted to report that Lifelites is continually growing and expanding the number of projects we are working on across the British Isles. We are planning to support a number of new children’s hospices opening over the next few years, new hospice at home community projects and plan to support more Transition projects too.

All this additional work needs additional staff and we are currently recruiting for two new positions: 
  1. Operations Manager (Head Office, London) 
  2. Part Time Hospice Staff Trainer (Home based - Midlands/North of England)
Please spread the word, or get in touch if you have any questions or would like any further information about these posts.
It has been lovely to revisit several hospices over the last couple of months to deliver refresher training on their Lifelites equipment. We held sessions at Richard House, London, Naomi House and Jacks Place, Winchester, Grace House, Sunderland and Acorns for The Three Counties, Worcester.
These sessions are great for introducing new staff to the Lifelites equipment, ironing out any technical or user issues with the equipment, answering questions or concerns, or just reminding staff that attended the original training of what is available and how to use it.
Refresher training
If you think you need some refresher training or perhaps you have new staff that haven’t seen the Lifelites equipment, then get in touch if you would like to arrange a session at your Hospice in 2016. Check out our website to see what courses are available or we can  tailor something specific to you
