Developing new activities

The Life Project is reaching out into the community to ensure the support we provide for those with learning disabilities can be accessed by many more people. Tom, our Barn Development and Outreach Worker, is following up contacts and talking to many people and organisations to ensure we can offer opportunities which are meaningful and person-centred. For example, Tom reports that …

“Key people in Three Ways and Fosse Way Schools and Bath College have shown real interest in what the Life Project is doing; they have visited the Barn with a view to their students considering it as a day placement when they move on to Adult services. I have also been in discussion with contacts in Englishcombe village and other organisations, looking at possibilities for activities involving projects related to conservation, community gardening and forest skills. In addition, I have been exploring activities including music and drama, life skills, health and fitness and woodwork.”

Tom would welcome your ideas and prayers for the next stage: identifying who would most benefit from the new projects; deciding on what activities we should offer; finding the right people to lead and help.  For more information contact t.riley@lifeprojectbath.org.uk
