Adult Outreach Service-We provide a long established community support project for one to one support enabling people to be active in their own community.  The programme is suitable for; 

a)those who find it difficult to access group or building based activities due to complex physical or behavioural needs and is based on day or half day session.

b)those wishing to have short sessions often 2 to 3 hours to be supported in mainstream community activity of their choice.

The Independence Studio-A well establisehed social enterprise for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs who enjoy art, craft, music, computers and film making, who want to achieve and use their skills.  Run out of the Grace Little Centre, one to one support can be given if funded.  Projects in the past have been funded by the Heritage Lottery, Police & Crime Commissioner & Cabinet Office.  We aim to look at ASDAN qualifications if possible.
