Dedicated space for wellbeing created for staff at The Kirkwood

As The Kirkwood celebrate its 35th year providing end-of-life care for those in Kirkwood, the team celebrated the official opening of an exclusive space dedicated to the health and wellbeing of its staff. 

Staff from The Kirkwood were joined by I&G to celebrate with a grand reveal of their newly refurbished and upgraded dining facilities. Together the team’s enjoyed refreshments and a plaque unveiling ceremony to welcome staff members into their brand-new space. 

Christopher Carline, Managing Director for I&G said;  

“It was fantastic to be able to design the new staff facilities together with The Kirkwood to add that extra personal touch to the space. 

“Our design for ‘The Kirkwood Kitchen’ gives the charity something modern and fresh, whilst also delivering a flexible space for their hard-working teams to relax, eat and socialise in.” 

“It’s a cause that means a lot to us all and we wanted to return something special that would benefit everyone who works for and with The Kirkwood.” 

Refurbishment works to the canteen area has created a dedicated space to rejuvenate, as well as a custom-designed area for staff to have downtime and nourish themselves. Further work for the canteen begins to give flexibility in the arrangement of hexagon dining tables for larger meetings and social gatherings 

Michael Crowther, Chief Executive for The Kirkwood, was delighted with the new space and believes it will become a space not just to grab a bite to eat but serve as a haven for the charity’s dedicated volunteers and employees. 

’I&G have far exceeded our expectations; They’ve given us a modern, relaxing space to spend time in. The Kirkwood Kitchen is no longer just a room to eat a meal, but a vibrant place to take time out, catch up with colleagues and unwind. 

“Our teams work tirelessly, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide outstanding and compassionate care for patients and their families, so this couldn’t be more important. I am thrilled with our new dining space.’’
