The service has been set up to support clients with the personal development during times when they are not in college, work placements or community provision. It is our aim to work with education establishments, families and carers to help further develop established skills.
Through a range of practical activities and social inclusion we aim to ensure the client has the opportunity to explore their own potential.
Core sessions include:
- Art & crafts
- Healthy lifestyles
- Sports & Fitness
- Enterprise Schemes
- Voluntary work
By providing core activities we will endeavour to provide clients with the tools to experience new possibilities and opportunities whilst building on their personal strengths and helping to develop new skills. Although principal activities are offered, the client will have the autonomy to make choices about activities that they would like to try and take part in and time will be spent listening to the client. We believe it is important to find out what they have done, what they are currently doing and what they would like to do in the future. By building on past experiences the client will relate their activity choices to their current interests.
By introducing clients to new experiences with us, we will assist them in adapting to change. They will be encouraged to be proactive at all times and supported to self-assess their development. This will help them to recognise their individual and team achievements and identify areas for further development.
