  • Staying safe

  • Travel training

  • Road safety

  • Creative workshops including Drama, Dance and Music, Photography, Art, Craft and upcycling.


Additional Support

We have developed new services and resources which offer further opportunities for people with additional needs.

These services offer additional communication and sensory activities which increase interaction, engagement, physical health and self-determination.

We employee a dedicated team to provide 1:1 support which enables people with additional health, physical and communication needs to access activities of their choice.

We will build services around people who choose us to support them. We provide opportunities for people to access their community resources.  

We provide support to Children and young people.

We successfully bid for additional funds which enable us to provide activities and special experiences for people who use our services.


Promoting Independence Service

Programme of Activities

Activities will require some formal building based delivery, however, to encourage real life approaches, a much higher emphasis will be placed on learning within community based settings.

Our proposed sites will serve as Hub and meeting points.
