I decided to find ways to provide basic skills classes for my sister and other adults with learning disabilities who simply wanted to do the things that so many of us take for granted. Things like writing a birthday card, being able to pay for a drink in a cafe, read a simple information leaflet or a bus timetable. It didn’t seem too much to ask.
We now work with some great tutors who create learning environments that are fun, stimulating and individually tailored to support each person’s needs and interests.
We offer a range of classes through our clubs where people are invited to participate and to contribute to a positive learning environment for themselves and the other participants. We want people to feel welcome, included, valued and celebrated for what they can do.
We raise money to pay tutors, buy learning resources and hire venues. We welcome volunteers to help us in the classes and in running the charity, writing grant applications, sponsoring classes and learning activities and fulfilling our mission.
The ladies I support, look forward to Fran's sessions each week. Fran is amazing at what she does. As a support worker, I find these classes very beneficial to their needs and the way they participate within the group. They are truly amazing sessons.
Fran's classes are enjoyable greatly by all the people I support. They have fun and are improving their numeracy and literacy at the same time.
