This week at What Next? programme participants got a chance to take part in a multi-sensory activity session helping develop skills in sensory integration. Multi-sensory activities provide a variety of sensory stimulation for young people with additional needs.
Access to short-term Independent Living at Lilac House is a key focus of our What Next? programme supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The programme gives young people with additional needs aged 19 - 25 who feel ready a chance to develop and learn new independent living skills, skills such as convenient cookery including preparing breakfast, using the dishwasher, microwave and using adapted utensils if required.
Young people with disabilities who have taken part in a huge range of activities on our programmers had their achievements recognised at the Strictly Our Achievements Celebration Event.
Held at La Mon Hotel and Country Club (5 April), the event celebrated the achievements of young people we support.
We need your help!
Please nominate us in the 2019 National Lottery Awards for our work empowering young people with additional needs to develop the skills to live independently and achieve their potential.
