STEPScic was established in 2011 and was the first of its kind to be set up in the borough of Wigan. We provide opportunities for both male and female adults with a learning disability.
Our site in Wigan is located at Ashland House and has good public transport links. Having recently been refurbished with a bright, modern interior, Ashland house has a spacious hallway that leads to a large kitchen and dining room, a social room with pool table, a fully equipped art room, a relaxation room and a TV room with games area. A large range of activities are available from this site and are chosen by the individual. Areas of choice may include sport and leisure, art, design and photography, food preparation, gardening, general maintenance and visits to areas of interest. Our polytunnel, raised beds, garden and patio space is based at Ashland House. This area enables attendees to grow plants and vegetables whilst also providing a relaxing outdoor space.
Our sport sessions take place just a short walk from Ashland House at Rose Bridge Community Club, where we have access to a large indoor sports dome. This ensures that whatever the weather sports activities can take place.
Our site in Golborne is a fully equipped wood workshop that is located at Golborne Enterprise Park. We have created a work environment with all the facilities and equipment required to enable individuals to access a real life work experience. Individuals are able to develop practical woodwork skills as well as developing knowledge and understanding of health and safety.
