Save Money! A major UK survey found that on average Activity Co-ordinators spend over 4 hours every week preparing and planning activity sessions. That equates to around £130 per month, and it also means they are not ‘resident-facing’ for those 4 hours. The Resource Pack save you money and increase the amount of time your Activity Co-ordinators spend with residents.
