It's hard to exaggerate the effect this experience has had on me. I really do look at the world differently now.
Reach is our exciting new daytime project designed to help each member achieve their goals and reach their full potential! At Reach, mornings will be spent developing new skills, whilst afternoons will be for fun and friends! You can choose to come to both sessions, or just one, depending on what feels right for you. You’ll work closely with staff to identify what is important to you and how you can achieve it. When you’re ready, our in house Transitions Manager will be on hand to help you take your next step.
What will we do?
- Achieve goals and learn new skills
- Gain confidence and independence
- Have fun with friends
- Get out in the community
How does it work?
Morning sessions will be focused on learning new skills and developing independence.
Afternoon sessions will be a time for making friends, having fun and getting out into the community.
Ahead of each term we will send you a new timetable with details of what you can expect on each day. We’ll ask you to let us know which day/s you would like to attend, and whether you want to come to the morning session, the afternoon session or both.
What to expect?
Life skills: These sessions will help you build practical skills to increase your independence. This term, we will focus on how to plan, budget and prep a healthy meal.
Skills for Work: These sessions will focus on developing skills for the workplace (be it paid or voluntary). They are aimed at those who see a job or voluntary placement as part of their future plan.
Wellbeing: We hear a lot of talk about “wellbeing” these days! At these sessions, we’ll look
at what wellbeing actually is, and have a go at some different techniques to keep our
wellbeing on track.
Enterprise: These will be creative sessions where we’ll be trying our hand at different crafts, with a view to sell in the Yellow Sub cafes! This term we’ll be making candles – from picking the scents to designing the packaging, our members will be taking the lead at every step.
Morning sessions will cost £30, this will include the cost of lunch.
Afternoon sessions will cost £5 plus the cost of activities.
