Activities on Offer
With a number of our clients living independently, we aim to provide appropriate advice and support in order for them to achieve their full potential in their own home.
Arts & Crafts, Media, IT and Photography
We offer the opportunity to stretch imagination and develop creativity. From expressive painting and digital photography to publishing newsletters.
Numeracy and Literacy
Sessions are in place to enable opportunies in building and improving core skills. These are not carried out in a formal classroom setting, but through fun activities and games e.g. 'Hangman'
Our clients feel it is important to gain knowledge and understanding of their surroundings, the wider environment and other cultures. All trips are chosen and researched by clients.
Drama, Music and Dance
A favourite with all, as this aids self expression whilst also promoting confidence and self-esteem
We are currently working in partnership with Find You Voice, an organisation that promotes improvements in mental health and wellbeing, confidence and creativity through singing.
Clients take a hands on approach in designing items such as plant troughs etc. and then turn concept into reality in the safe environment of our woodwork studio.
The Hive provides a number of recreational and social events. Including bowling, trips out and themed activities e.g. Haloween etc.
Exercise and Healthy Living
We have a qualified fitness instructor that provides 2 weekly sessions of gentle exercise. This not only helps our clients with physical fitness that improves co-ordination but also helps with mental well being and team building. Advice on healthy living, personal hygiene, healthy eating and self care is also provided.
Our in house charity shop provides clients with a range of opportunities e.g. customer service skills, stock control, handling money etc. These opportunities help build confidence and the chance to learn new skills.
