Our Vision is to provide a wide range of creative activities and experiences which will help every individual learn new skills and improve existing ones.

Our Staff share a personal goal; to encourage every client to take part in activities which will: build on existing skills, improve social inclusion and promote mutual respect. We place our clients at the centre of what we do and provide activities which follow their individual person centred plan. Each client’s needs and aspirations are our first priority. We aim to improve their sense of wellbeing and happiness through their own personal goals whilst respecting the views of parents and carers.

Each activity will have at its heart the intention to provide a session which enhances the enjoyment experienced. Where appropriate there will be a ‘wow’ factor to an activity, for example, the ‘clients in the Sports Activity Group’ climbed and crossed over the roof of the O2. This experience was exhilarating and was much talked about for weeks after. Activities like bowling, BOCCIA, swimming, and accessing local and not so local amenities provides opportunities for client engagement. The client experience, however, starts from the moment they become ‘a group’ on the coach, the scenery they pass provides a different perspective, they are encouraged to notice the usual and the not so usual scenery they pass on their way. Finally, they undertake the session activity which can provide the opportunity to improve fitness, social skills, community interaction which leads to increased confidence. clients can also develop their competitive side whilst respecting one another.
