‘I’m in a creative environment where I can channel my imagination’
Our aim is to increase our skills so that we are better able to make choices that promote independence in all aspects of our lives.
Our day centre provides support and training in a relaxed and friendly environment. Most students attend for two or three days per week, depending on our needs. All of our workshops incorporate life skills such as literacy, numeracy and communication. Students are also encouraged to engage with our local community by taking part in activities outside the centre.
We aim to be as much as possible a student led organisation. Students are encouraged take an active role in shaping our activities and take responsibility for the running of the centre. Each workshop has between two and four students taking part, a tutor facilitating and often a volunteer supporting. Our small workshop sizes allow students’ individual needs to be met through tailored support. We enjoy taking part in group activities but also pursuing our personal projects.
