Day Services Provision
Our Day Service provision sits in 23 acres of farm land and is an excellent opportunity for service users to benefit from a rural environment.
We focus on developing transferable work-based skills which fosters and encourages the achievement of personal goals. By supporting service users to become involved in the day-to-day activities at our Day Services we are able to develop a fulfilled sense of achievement while building confidence, new friendships, teamwork, communication skills and problem solving skills.
The service also promotes development and improvement of physical and mental well-being through therapeutic contact with animals. We have various different animals on the farm and animal care courses to suit all ability levels.
The service provides a variety of courses which service users choose to attend, based on their interests and needs. Each course runs over the duration of a term, similar in nature to other educational courses run by colleges. Sessions are planned and overseen by Group Leaders passionate about the particular subject matter.
There are group rooms where courses are based, each tailored to provide sessions for the specific needs and interests of service users. Each service user is encouraged to take part in the development, planning, delivery and evaluation of their service.
There will be a wide range of sessions available to include:
- Independent Living Skills
- Cooking from scratch
- Clay modelling
- Music Therapy
- Art Therapy
- Rural Crafts
- Small Animal Care
