Regan upskills in Hospital Estates team. Supported internship story

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust  have been proudly supporting Project Search for more than a year, offering placements within their Estates and Facilities team and other departments at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby.

Working in partnership with Linkage Community Trust and North East Lincolnshire Council, they have seen first-hand the benefits these placements have brought, not only for the young people but for their organisation too. 

Regan, 20, is a perfect example. He has been working with the Estates team since September and is already regarded as one of the team, spending time with them socially, as well as being a firm favourite in the workshop. Known throughout the Trust for being friendly and helpful, the team has even started to learn sign language in their own time, to help them to communicate better with Regan, who is deaf.
