  1. Why is it that any untrained member of the public can get a job looking after the clients at COPE? Whilst their peers at the EGC are looked after by highly trained qualified staff. Is this why so many family and friends have been hired in the past few years, because they know who they are employing? Or are they just 'feathering their own nests'! Either way it seems an extremely unhealthy way to run a business.
  2. I am not worried! But would like people to be aware as to how council money is being in my opinion squandered on COPE, who after all are meant to be helping the most vulnerable people in our society to find employment within the local community, and as far as I can see that has failed. I have not heard of one client moving into other employment. It was raised earlier on in this discussion as to who was keeping whom in a job. I think Meggies post makes that crystal clear.
  3. If I remember correctly when the new managment team steamed into COPE, they immediately made numerous of the adults with special needs redundant, which at that time caused a lot of upset. If it is the case, that they have recieved this grant to enable some of these people to get back to wor k and have not done so, they should hang their heads in shame!
  4. Don't have to go too far to find SLS free stuff, just to the Street, Boots Naked range is what I 'usually have' in my bathroom cabinet - Sensodyne pronamel is my toothpaste of choice, again SLS free
  5. No, I am not an ex 'disgruntled employee' or even someone with an 'axe to grind' I am how ever someone who supports cope where it counts... In their shops. But here I must make a plea to cope, please do something about your body wash formula, I bought some lavender and rose body wash, and I am sorry to say that it is awful! My skin has never been so dry and flaky, on looking at the ingredients I see that it has sodium laural sulphate, I found this about it on the net. Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) is a synthetic detergent (cleaning agent) and surfactant (which means it makes bubbles). It is used in industrial products such as car wash soap, engine degreasers and floor cleaners. SLS is also an ingredient in a wide range of personal care products such as soaps, shampoos and toothpastes. http://www.babycentre.co.uk/a1037209/sodium-lauryl-sulphate-sls#ixzz34jyw17RR You can do better than this Cope, make something that is kind to people not just kind to the producers pocket!! I dont want to wash in the same stuff I clean my car with!
  6. What has happened to the prices at the Scrap-store? I was in on Friday, and they were sky high! I couldn't believe how much some things cost. The charity shops in town tried that once, and people just stopped buying. I always thought that their stuff was priced to help poor folk - not any more! The atmosphere in the store was terrible, and I was most surprised to see the woman who has been behind the counter for years and done the pricing is no longer allowed to do it...allegedly! I shall be using Shet-link classifieds from now on.
