Education


A range of educational activities including numeracy and literacy, discussion groups, practical skills, fun science, Information Technology and 1:1 project work are integral to the services offered to our patients.


Recreation and vocational activities


Other activities we offer within our services include cooking, nutrition and healthy living, woodwork and horticulture. Walking and other aerobic activities we offer patients have been shown in studies to have many health benefits.


Patient participation in vocational activities offers a strong contrast to academic sessions. Our vocational skills programme focus on transferability and relevance to the patient.


Engagement in meaningful occupation has a positive impact on self-esteem and confidence. Participating in maintenance and other vocational sessions offers an achievement which can be seen visually. This not only offers immediate reinforcement and reward at the end of each task, but a longer lasting achievement and self esteem when the projects are completed.
