Stepping Stones offers a day service to young people and adults  with autistic spectrum disorders, learning disabilities and mental health difficulties.

This support is designed to develop skills and qualifications and help build confidence.

 

Our day service offers therapeutic and recreational activities for those with a learning disability who do not have complex care needs or challenging behaviours.

We also provide a day opportunities program which offers a person centred plan to  provide opportunities in areas such as education, employment, leisure, volunteering and also community involvement.

 

For many people, engaging with the community or living independently can be an anxiety-provoking experience. Engaging in everyday activities can have a profound effect on a person's health and well-being. Our staffs are skilled in working with clients to identify the difficulties they may face in the community and work with them to build confidence and the necessary living skills required to live in the community.

Every client's situation is unique, but some of the ways we can help include teaching people skills to overcome difficulties, facilitating the relearning of old skills, modifying the environment to make it more accessible or identifying new activities that clients want to do.

We have a large number of therapeutic programs that all can participate in, each tailored to meet clients' needs. As part of the initial assessment one of our care staff carries out an interest/hobby checklist, which determines activities, schedule specific to each client.

 

Our day service offers a safe and welcoming  place for young people and adults with  learning disabilities to meet and make friends in their local community.
