What we offer

Getting to know you……we like to get to know you and your family so that you are not just a case number, you’re not someone’s work load, you are a human “bean” not a tin of beans!

  • We will encourage you to select your favourite activities, to help you form friendships with fellow clients and build good working relationships with the team.
  • Throughout everything we do, there is always a light-hearted and fun approach.
  • A “taster day” is offered to all potential new clients before joining us, so that you can see what is on offer and the team can assess what help and support you may need
  • All clients are encouraged to build their own wish list for their future and the team will help you put small steps in place to help you achieve this
  • We offer several residential activities per year for example Center Parcs & Camping.
  • It may be useful to know that everything we do is well planned, assessed and reviewed to ensure that we deliver a quality service and are meeting your needs.
  • Every 3 months we rotate our programme giving you the chance to try new challenges and build on what you have already learnt, making sure that you don’t get bored!
  • We focus on safety, security, well being and health of all who use our services

All of which enables us to provide a person-centred approach that is truly centred on individual assessed, expressed and identified needs.
