We support people with a variety of different needs including cerebral palsy, brain injury, epilepsy, sensory impairments, Down’s Syndrome, physical disabilities and autism. We can also support people who show behaviours that challenge.
We aim to provide high quality support to adults with a learning disability and other complex needs, increasing their presence in the community and providing care packages that incorporate social, vocational, leisure and educational activities.
Activity packages will be designed for each person based on their aspirations, needs and interests. Each person will receive one-to-one support with a dedicated group of key workers. As well as ensuring safety whilst taking part in activities, this one-to-one attention enables each person to develop skills and increase their independence.
All activities are fully risk assessed and clear support plans are drawn up to ensure a consistent approach is taken by all staff. Our base is not a regular venue for activities as we strive to make full use of community resources and offer a service in line with valuing people, the modernisation of day services and our own aims as an innovative organisation. However, the centre does have an activity area which can be used if an external activity is unavailable or someone needs to return to base for any reason.
Some examples of activities we offer are rambling, learning shopping skills, bowling, swimming, football, craft sessions, gardening, day trips to local attractions, ice skating, music sessions, woodwork, visiting the library, hydrotherapy, going to the pub and attending the local gym.
Everyone has access to a vehicle, enabling them to attend their activities without waiting for group transport and providing the flexibility to be picked up and dropped off wherever they wish each day. Individuals will have a thorough transition during which time they will be introduced to their key workers.
