We encourage individuals to be active, valued community inclusive citizens and take part in opportunities that support and help the community too.

As part of our activities of choice, we build in learning plans developed by the manager of our Inclusive Opportunities who is a special needs teacher.

Daily pamper sessions are held for facials and nails. Hand and foot spas, massages are offered daily. These sessions are particularly effective to allow an individual to get used to being touched to accept nail cutting.

Social Skills, Learning & Development

‘’Learning and developing new skills is a part of who we are to progress as people. We will encourage you to develop these skills and ensure you consider activities that suit your needs to achieve your goals, dreams and ambitions. We will guide you not only as carers and supporters, but also to make good decisions with positive risk taking.

We understand that not all things in life go to plan and there may be some hiccups along the way, but don’t worry - we’ve got it covered. Trial and error is also a stepping stone every person comes across in their life.

We are here to support you through your experiences. There are no mistakes in life – just lessons to be learned. We can support you, overcoming hurdles together.

PSHE

(Personal, Social, Health & Economics Education)

We focus on developing the knowledge, skill and attributes to keep our service users healthy and safe and build on their life skills. PSHE education is defined to promote the development and growth as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. The goal is to equip our people with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safely, productively and responsibly.

How can we do this?

By providing opportunities, activities and experiences for our service users that allow them to grow, develop, have choices, lead a healthy and happy lifestyle and contribute to the local community and the wider world in a positive way.
