Our staff use a range of personalised approaches that enables adults to be actively involved in choosing their own activities and programmes areas of interest. 

Each adult's programme consists of important Personal and Social Development areas including: communication and social interaction, sensory, personal care, independent living skills and health and wellbeing.
