Firm helps to nurture future workers

Winsford-based manufacturing firm Advanced Medical Solutions is supporting a programme to help nurture the next generation of the town’s workers.

The company has extended its funding to support Passion for Learning’s volunteers to be placed at primary schools.

AMS specialises in the design, development, manufacture and distribution of advanced wound care products, surgical dressings and medical grade materials. The company employ nearly 500 people globally, some 200 at their Winsford site.

Passion for Learning is a charitable organisation with over 120 volunteers, who provide support to children in primary schools across Cheshire West, with the emphasis on learning through play.

It works with more than 300 children across Cheshire West and Chester, both 1:1 during the school day and through a network of after-school enrichment clubs.

The partnership between AMS and Passion for Learning began last year when the company agreed to support three volunteers at primary schools located close to their Winsford manufacturing plant.

Diane Clark, managing director of Passion for Learning, who founded the organisation eight years ago, said: “Our team of committed volunteers help by providing the kind of flexible support which is tailored to the child’s own interests and motivations.

“Using books, games, crafts, construction and conversation we work to develop learning skills, nurture social and emotional skills, promote literacy and bolster the confidence and self-esteem that we know is crucial to effective learning.

“We are delighted by the support which the AMS Group has committed to us in a number of different ways, from supporting our recruitment of Passion for Learning volunteers in the local area, to sponsoring the service we provide to schools in Winsford.

“Their support enables us to provide volunteers to a number of local schools, along with the resources that they need to help the children they see.

Chris Meredith, chief executive of Advanced Medical Solutions Group, said: “We recognise the difference a nurturing and supportive volunteer can make to the children who need some additional help at school. As a local employer, we also have a vested interest in ensuring the young people in our region develop the skills they need in order to become part of the workforce of the future.”

Passion for Learning is seeking volunteers to go into primary schools in and around Winsford, for between 1.5-3 hours a week. No prior experience is needed as full training and support is provided.
