We would like to thank Carmel College for inviting us to their first ever transition event. It was a pleasure to attend and fantastic to meet so many people interested in our service. We look forward to seeing you for some planned transition visits in the near future.

Pop Art Portraits

stepscic_word_p No Comments

WOW! What fantastic paintings have been created in one of our Art and Design workshops. Gareth, Stephen and Ryan have been inspired by the work of American Pop Artist Roy Lichtenstein. By using their own image as a starting point then using technology as a tool to enable development, they have created a self-portrait in the style of the artist. It was great for people to see them working on these pieces at our Open Evening. Gareth, Stephen and Ryan have worked very hard and we are very proud of their artistic success. I’m sure that you will agree that their completed paintings are outstanding!

Birds of Prey Experience

STEPScic today hosted a birds of prey experience for our attendees and also welcomed Oakfield College and members of the local community to join us at Rose Bridge Community Club. Gareth from Hawksrus was very educational and interactive, ensuring that everyone was able to touch, hold or fly a bird of prey if they so wished.  Everyone enjoyed getting up close and personal with an European Eagle Owl, a Tawny Owl, a Little Owl, a Frog Mouthed Owl and a Barn Owl.  We would to thank Gareth for creating a thoroughly enjoyable experience and it was fantastic to hear one of our attendees commenting ‘I was scared before but not now’. We would also like to thank Sheila, Megan and Margaret at Rose Bridge Community Club for the use of the facilities and for providing refreshments.

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.

We would love to hear from you
