Forget Me Not Children's Hospice support children with life-shortening conditions and their families through a variety of services across 13 sites in West Yorkshire and Manchester. The organisation's vision is for a world in which children and young people no longer face life-shortening conditions, and until that day comes, their mission is to offer them and their families as much support, love and laughter as they can handle. Recognising the passion and hard work invested by members of the team, Forget Me Not look to create a positive working environment where all staff are offered support. The entire team was recently involved in the creation of new organisational values, which they now look to embed into their culture on an ongoing basis. Chief Executive Peter Branson places great importance on regular engagement with teams across the business, holding weekly meetings to celebrate successes and share updates. He has also begun to hold weekly coffee mornings, in which staff are invited to ask any questions they may have.
