Textile Pumpkins

Pumpkins have inspired this week’s textile sessions with large and small fabric pumpkins being made.  It’s fantastic to see skill development in the use of the sewing machine as well as increasing confidence in textile techniques.  Some attendees have used their pumpkin creations in their Halloween floristry displays to stunning effect.  Our in-house activities are delivered by our highly skilled staff, providing a fantastic range of opportunity to enable our attendees to reach their potential.

Our attendees this week have been creating Autumn/Halloween inspired wreaths. They have demonstrated a range of skills, manipulating fabric and adding decorations for their desired effect.  I’m sure that you will agree that the results are absolutely stunning.

Travel Training Success

stepscic_word_p No Comments

Accessing public transport allows people to become more independent and assists in helping to overcome challenges, removes barriers and provides greater access to explore the communities in which we live. Simply getting on a bus is what most of us take for granted, however for some there are various barriers and challenges to overcome. Jason wanted the confidence to travel independently, therefore with our support we engaged the services of Embrace Wigan and Leigh’s Travel Training Programme. Three weeks later and after support from a travel trainer who assisted Jason with a programme designed around Jason’s lifestyle, Jason has grown in confidence and is now using public transport independently to travel to our service. This is an outstanding achievement, well done Jason we are all proud of you. #embracewiganandleigh #wigancouncil #TheDeal

Our ongoing relationship with Rose Bridge Community Club provides us with exclusive access to a fantastic space where we are able to facilitate socially distanced sports sessions no matter what the weather.  This ensures that we are able to promote varied regular exercise in-house as part of our ongoing health and wellbeing sessions.

Salon Success

We have taken appropriate measures to ensure our attendees can continue to access our on-site salon both as a customer and as a trainee.  The salon is fully equipped and attendees work under the guidance of our own fully trained hairdresser enabling us to provide fantastic opportunities for the attendee in the development of both employment and independent Living skills.

Outreach Support

Outreach enables us to provide flexible and tailored support to suit the changing needs of the individual with all activities focused on achieving positive outcomes.  Sean is currently wanting to achieve greater independence and it’s fantastic to see him developing life skills such as cooking and household chores as well as by developing links in his local community.
