Daniel's building for the future

One of our homes in Keighley is working with local toy shop, Bric-Kit, and their partners Bricks4Kidz, to run regular Lego therapy sessions at the home for the people they support.

The home provides specialist support to people with a wide range of disabilities, including autistic spectrum disorders and Asperger’s Syndrome.

Daniel has lived at the home for over a year. He recently began working at the shop, which sells new and used Lego as well as providing a Lego-washing service for customers.

Working with his support worker Paul, Daniel visits the shop every Saturday and washes the Lego. He is responsible for putting the pieces in washing bags, loading the bags into the cleaning machine then transferring the clean Lego to the dryer.

Daniel is thriving in his new job, speaking confidently to customers and ensuring all his tasks are completed each day.

Voyage Care service manager Keith Moran said: “The aim of the home is to work with the people we support to provide them with stability and structure, enabling them to build on their current skills and abilities to prepare themselves for the next level of support.

“By providing a joint interest and goal, Lego-building can encourage social development including sharing, turn-taking, making eye-contact and following social rules.”
