P2 Report on specific team activity relating to health and social care
For our assignment and as part of our college course we took part in two activities that relate to health and social care. These activities were Children In Need, and The White Ribbon Day. Within these activities I took part on my own and as a team, they were also both planned as a class. Children in need is run by the BBC, They have a vision for every child in the UK. “Our vision is that every child in the UK has a childhood which is:
