Many of our learning opportunities take place at the day centre. For those who prefer a systematic approach to learning, our ASDAN qualifications provide a structure as well as the chance to gain a formal qualification.
We embed learning into our daily activities so for example, if you follow a digital skills ASDAN you might do an online food shop, or search the internet for recipes for the 'shop and cook' sessions. If you like the sound of the Horticulture ASDAN then you're likely to get involved in growing vegetables and using them in the cookery activities.
We have an active gardening group that has created a lovely garden with raised beds. They have made a compost heap, laid grass seed, and grown all sorts of produce, including carrots, strawberries, beans, pumpkins and tomatoes.
Spa and mindfulness sessions which involve hand massages, foot spas and aromatherapy oils and sensory baking are just some of our more therapeutic activities.
The emphasis of 'Feel good Friday' is on fun activities such as karaoke, music quizzes, arts and crafts, ball games, dancing and keep fit, which promote self-expression, confidence, coordination and keeping fit.
