In addition to our varied activity calendar, we are also offering longer half-day opportunities to deliver therapeutic outcomes and provide carer respite in the form of ‘The Sessions’. You’ll notice certain key differences from our usual activities immediately.
Firstly, they last longer – we want to be able to take the time to let skills develop and nurture talent, and we want to allow carers proper respite.
Secondly, they build towards a tangible result, such as, a picture, a foreign language, a performance – we want to stimulate and create.
Thirdly, they include lunch – the social glue of a shared meal will be very important to success.
And finally, there’s a cost attached – but a cost that we believe is very reasonable, and SDS payments can be used.
