To adapt and develop new ways of providing supported activities for adults with learning disabilities.

We have been a much needed and valued service for the last ten years. We have a small experienced staff team, a dedicated board of trustees and a great group of volunteers who work as a team to provide a range of activities within community centres- dance, drama, music and so much more! 

Sadly we have had to stop our group activities due to the coronavirus pandemic, and we have been providing online activities over the last 6 months and our versatile staff group have been able to adapt to providing dance and music sessions online.

We are looking for funding to adapt our programme of activities, so that the people who most needed can still access some small group activities, and other can still join online activities. Most of the people who previously attended our group sessions have been shielded, and have experienced high levels of isolation, a lack of routine and been unable to meet up with friends or take part in activities that benefit their health and wellbeing.

We aim to raise funds to provide small groups which are safe, well planned and staff intensive so that people can still have structure and socialisation to fill their days, while still providing online activities and support to people in their own homes. This will require staff, IT equipment and resources, and funding will ensure our project can go ahead for the next year.
