Our community day programme is suitable for young adults with Very High Needs. The day programme was established in the beginning of 2017, and runs alongside the after-school and holiday programmes. Our objective at the Community Day Programme is to achieve a fulfilled and rewarding life in our community. The participants in the programme have transitioned to the day programme after the completion of their schooling and are aged 21 and over, however, our young adults may be aged 18 and over. Due to the Nature of our attendees, our service operates at a ratio of 2 staff to ever 3 clients.
We pride ourselves on our caring atmosphere, where flexibility is possible due to the small, family-type atmosphere. We are in regular contact with parents and carers, to ensure programmes are meeting the needs of the young adults that are attending. The programme incorporates a range of activities e.g. physical activities such as swimming, games and walking. Activities with a social and cognitive component include baking, craft and music. There is an emphasis on utilizing the resources of our local community so we participate in 'adventures' to local community centres, art galleries, libraries, parks and areas of interest.
Lifekidz premises are fully accessible for wheelchair users, with an outdoor play area, a large hall, and smaller homely rooms with comfortable furniture. We also have our own transport available for outings.
