Our employers (Alexandra and Samy) together with Bianca Oprea from Mersey Care "share the same vision to empower the people they support to be actively  involved in their own health and wellbeing journal. If that happens they can become community champions , which creates a ripple effect -They are giving back to their communities".

GTDT take pride in identifying individual needs  and offer ongoing support to many families.

On 30th September 2020, GTDT's Community Clothes Rail team surprised one local resident with a few extra items.

Sarah, from the Smithdown Road area. L8, is expecting her 3rd child, and GTDT were really happy to deliver some baby essentials, which included baby clothing, blankets, toiletries and a moses basket.

Sarah's husband said, "We are so grateful to GTDT for the gifts you have given us, we really appreciate it".

Our community is very important to us, and GTDT will continue to help the families in need, for as long as we possibly can.

Distance Learning

We are delighted to be taking expressions of interest again for some of our most popular Distance Learning Courses which are designed, so you can learn in the safety of your own home.  

Some courses due to the nature of the resources used are 'online' only courses and will involve zoom sessions, emails and using other online resources.  Where possible and to keep our courses as accessible as possible there is a choice between the 'online' option and a 'mobile phone' option which will involve using WhatsApp, texts and paper worksheets, quizzes, etc.

Take a look at our Distance Learning page to find out more details!

National Curry Week 2020

This week is National Curry week, which gives us an excuse to share some of our favourite recipes.

A simple but perfect side to any Indian feast is Saag Aloo and once you've made it, it's definitely one you'll want to make again and again.  You can find the full recipe by clicking here.

With a whole range of aromatic spices, these potatoes really pack a punch. Stir through spinach and scatter with chilli and serve. What's more, this speedy Indian side dish is vegan, dairy- and gluten-free, so everyone can get involved.

We found that during our L8 Slow Food course, earlier in the year, curries are easily adaptable to slow cooking and in most cases help enhance the flavours even more.  Everyone enjoyed learning some new curry recipes, adapting their own and sharing some favourites with their groups, to use in the slow cooker.

If you would be interested in taking part in our next course you can find out more by clicking here.  If you are eligible you would get a FREE slow cooker and a FREE bag of veg each week, for six weeks.
