Our first Mirus Moments winners of 2024

Congratulations to our January Mirus Moments winners!

What is a Mirus Moment?

A Mirus Moment is when someone has done something extra special.  

We love to celebrate when someone has done something great, that shows they really believe in our values; Together, Respectful, Responsible, Empowering and Courageous.

Winners are chosen by our Mirus Reps, who are supported by Mirus and advocate for others.

Our Mirus Moment winners receive a £20 Love2Shop voucher, and we share their name, the area they live or work in, and the reason they were nominated online.

You can nominate online at this link: bit.ly/mirusmoments

Why were they nominated?

Cerian Shaw – Mirus staff, Central Services

I was invited to an interview for another position within Mirus. I currently don’t have a car, so I took the train and a taxi to the Bridgend office. However, upon arrival, I discovered there were no interviews scheduled there that day. After investigating, I found out the interview was actually in the Cardiff office, where I live. Cerian was very kind and offered me a lift to the Cardiff office, even stopping for food as she noticed I hadn’t eaten. Her help allowed me to remain calm and present myself well during the interview. I’m grateful for Cerian’s kindness and support, and it was great to chat with her and learn more about her. She is truly a credit to Mirus!

 

Christopher Watts – Mirus staff, Swansea

Chris has been very supportive of all staff. He encourages Team Leaders and support staff, making sure they feel supported. Chris is dedicated and passionate about his role, consistently appreciating everyone’s work. Everyone supported in the area enjoys his company, with one person saying, “I like when Chris visits, he’s always happy and funny.” We all appreciate his hard work.

His support makes me feel valued and happy in my job. Chris regularly checks in to see how things are going. He genuinely cares about staff and the mental wellbeing of the people who are supported. Chris has made such positive impact on many people in our community.

 

Helen Williams – Mirus staff, Ystradgynlais

Helen was recently promoted to a manager, and it’s amazing to see how she has improved the region. She supports her team, who are new but doing very well. The team is committed and meeting all their goals. Helen is not only supportive but also encourages her team to do their best. She organised a successful community event and is a real role model for others across Mirus.

All staff in the region get the training and support they need, including supervision and meetings. This has improved teamwork, reduced absences, and improved behavior. Helen’s leadership is leading to happier and more supported teams, which is making a big difference.

 

Raphael E – Supported by Mirus in Brecon

Raphael been getting support from Mirus for 15 months. At first, it was just a few hours a week, but it increased to full-time support. Raphael had a tough time at the beginning, but with a lot of encouragement and positive interaction from the support team, things got better. He built trust and started feeling more confident.

The support team stayed consistent, and helped Raphael to go outside into the garden for the first time in seven years. After that, Raphael started doing more activities outside and going on trips with others in the community.

Raphael’s progress has been a big success, making him feel happier and healthier. It’s also been great for the support team, showing their dedication. Congratulations to Raphael for achieving such a positive outcome. It has given him new opportunities and made his life better. Keep up the good work!

Aled W – Supported by Mirus in Swansea

Aled has worked hard to learn how to live independently, taking care of their health, going to appointments, managing medication, cooking healthy meals, and keeping their flat tidy. Overall, he has learned valuable life skills and become very independent.

Aled is also active in volunteering, helping out in a charity shop and restoring Swansea canal. His dedication has made a big difference in the community.

Now, Aled is ready to move into his own flat and live independently, and everyone is so proud of the progress he has made.

 

Alyn H – Supported by Mirus in Ystradgynlais

Alyn has been working hard with both the speech and language therapy (SALT) team and his support staff to improve his speech. He has been using new technology and practicing one new word a week with his staff every day.

As a result, Alyn has become more confident with his speech and is no longer hesitant to talk to strangers.
