Santa made a visit to TMS this year to hand out gifts to the YPs! He even brought the snow!
We are getting into the spirit of children in need this week and wanted to show Pudsey had joined us at our TMS+ Unit!
Here at TMS the staff and young people have created their own remembrance artwork for the armistice. This was joined with a company wide minute silence at 11am on Friday!
We are already getting into the Christmas spirit at TMS, with our young people getting very artistic, creating a Christmas Grinch.
TMS have created a relaxing sensory zone that we are calling the Zen Den! Here the young people can have some quiet time away from others and relax on the comfy bean bags, read a book, or play a game!
Art is great way for the young people to express themselves, with the young people at TMS showing their artistic sides with these artworks!
TMS are promoting healthy eating with the young people, who have thrived with this and created some fantastic healthy meals such as this tasty stir fry!
TMS have opened a brand-new coffee hub club in Kingsholm, where all staff and young people can relax and interact on bean bags and gaming chairs with a smoothie maker and coffee machine! Together, some of the young people have created a smoothie and milkshake recipe book!
At TMS we promote the young people to take part in as much baking and cooking where possible, promoting the independence of choosing ingredients and culinary skills. Here are some of the marvellous creations that have been concocted by the young people.
TMS have welcomed a new addition to the team! Daphne has joined us and has been a popular pup with all staff and young people!
Here at TMS we are very fortunate to have access to a local allotment that we maintain with the help of the young people throughout the year. This year, some of the young people chose what to plant and helped harvest it this year, with the following produce being harvested.
TMS fully endorsed Halloween this year and all staff and young people took on the challenge of carving their own pumpkins. This was selected by the young people as the winner of this years TMS Pumkin Challenge!

Just wanted to say thank you so so so so much for your and the teams support over the past weeks. I again note the quality of your recordings and this supported the judge to make the right decision for this baby. I hope to work with you again in the near future!
Can I take this opportunity to provide some feedback. During the time you have been supporting this family, TMS have provided an excellent service. Visits have been regular and consistently in accordance with the needs of the LA/family. The diary sheets are detailed, accurate and provided in a timely way. A representative has attended every support review meeting and highlighted straight away any safeguarding concerns. Your service has been significant in supporting us to accurately assess the needs of the family and decide on a longer-term plan for the children. I would highly recommend TMS should another family require tailored support in the community. Thank you so much.
Working with Lou and Bev, changed my life, in fact it saved my life. At first I was stubborn, worried and scared to let them in my home, but they earnt my trust and most importantly my children's. Their words will live with me for life and the most important ones that I remember daily are 'that you can't fake love'. I will always be grateful to them for all the work and support they gave me and my children. Opening your home is scary, but with these it don’t have to be, take that from a mum who never trusted anyone.
Their dedication, professionalism and person centred approach was paramount in assuring that the Young Person they are working with got the best care, support and mentoring during their time with Colin, Larry and the team.
For over 12 months, TMS and ourselves have worked closely to provide alternative education for the young people that are placed with us. The young people often have been out of education for an extremely long period and through this difficulty TMS work tirelessly in encouraging them to engage and seek to have positive outcomes for all the young people involved. They are extremely professional in their approach and also have great times with the kids..!!!!!! I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other providers..!!!
TMS offered a bespoke package of support to suit the needs of the young person who needed an alternative part-time provision. They ensured they were fully prepared to meet the needs of this young person by meeting with the team/family around the young person beforehand and their communication during the period of support was excellent.
Our son had a positive experience with Larry and Colin as he was finishing school and, when he hit a particularly difficult time in young adulthood, he was keen to re-establish contact with them. Now his weekly sessions are really important to him, and to us as parents. As someone who finds making friends and trusting others very hard, he benefits from the regular, safe and enjoyable contact that they provide. They go above and beyond what we would have expected and he knows they care about him. As well as taking him out, they have supported him with doctor's appointments and meetings with his social worker. He allows them to touch on some difficult subjects and give him advice. We have very much appreciated their reliability and excellent communication.
