The weekend respite programme is the development of independent living skills and leisure and social activities.
However, over the weekend there is more time to extend these skills. e.g. cooking skills may include planning and helping prepare an entire meal, or there maybe opportunities to help in the gardening and landscaping around the house.
Leisure and social activities will include whole days out usually by public transport (bus or train) and occasionally by car, including a picnic or lunch in café.
For those who wish there is the option to attend a local place of worship. Please give advance notice so that we can try to accommodate wishes.
Providing the opportunity for current students to have breakfast at college from the hours of 7.30am-9.30pm then to sessions. This allows the students to develop social skills with their peers.
It is the responsibilty of the parent / guardian to ensure that the student is brought to the college at the relevant time.
