It was a pleasure today to welcome students from Hope School and College to our Ince base, Ashland House.  Students enjoyed taking part in a variety of sessions which included football, cooking, rambling and hair and beauty.  Our staff thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone and it was a pleasure to receive such wonderful feedback.

It was a pleasure to welcome visitors and showcase our service at our Open Evening.  We would like to express a huge thanks to some of our attendees who volunteered their time to demonstrate their skills throughout the evening in planned sessions i.e. Cooking, Hair and Beauty, Woodwork and Art and Design.  We would also like to thank those attendees who welcomed visitors and served refreshments and Tina for providing the buffet.  For those who were unable to attend the open evening it has been a pleasure to welcome you by private appointment.   We look forward to seeing more of you in the near future.  

Remembrance Day

In order for us to remember and honour those who have fallen in service for their country in World War 1, World War 2 and subsequent conflicts,  STEPScic have created a poppy wreath.  Gareth, an Ince resident, represented STEPScic and joined representatives from other organisations to lay wreaths in the Garden of Remembrance at the service that was held at Smithy Green, Ince.  It was lovely to see so many members of the Ince community gather as a mark of respect for our fallen heroes.  A huge well done to Gareth for being an excellent ambassador.

We have had a fun filled day today to celebrate Halloween.  Attendees enjoyed dressing in fancy dress, having face paint applied, painting pumpkins and bobbing for apples, whilst our resident DJ, John ensured we had a party atmosphere.  Congratulations to Gareth for being voted best costume for his ‘Beetlejuice’.

We are pleased to be able to announce the launch of our on-site salon. Our sessions are run by Jaime who as a fully qualified Level 2 hairdresser has a wealth of experience with hair and beauty. Our attendees are able to learn how to wash, dry and style hair using our training heads which have real human hair. Our salon also comes equipped with a range of beauty products that allow our attendees to learn how to apply make-up and nail polish. A huge well done to Abigail who has shown a real flair for creating updo hairstyles as well as providing excellent nail polish treatments. Our salon is proving extremely popular with both staff and attendees who are also taking advantage of Jamie’s skills with the scissors!

Accident and Emergency Tour

stepscic_word_p No Comments

As part of our Health and Wellbeing sessions some of our attendees today visited Royal Albert Edward Infirmary. Our attendees visited a number of departments including A and E and X-ray and thoroughly enjoyed finding out about the different equipment and what it’s used for.  We were able to experience not only what it felt like to have our blood pressure and temperature taken but also to have a plaster cast or sling put on. To complete our accident and emergency tour we took a look inside an ambulance so that we would know what to expect if we were a patient. Our attendees thoroughly enjoyed their tour of the hospital and were very proud to receive their certificates. STEPScic would like to thank all staff at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary.

Oakfield High School and College Visit

Today, we have welcomed Oakfield College to our wood workshop in Golborne. Students were keen to take part in a couple of workshops that allowed them to construct using tools and a variety of materials. We are pleased to show the results of the owl workshop, in which students worked creatively to construct their own individualised owl, which they were then able to take away. Well done everyone, they look awesome!
