Personal Development Service
At Innovations we aim to provide individuals with the tools and coaching they need to move forward with their lives. Our personal development service ensures all who attend are able to continue learning in any area they wish. Support plans are devised to meet individuals needs and preferences as a stepping stone to moving on, whether this may be employment or further training, Innovations' staff are here to ensure guidance and encouragement are given to all in order to achieve their desired goal. A few examples can be seen below:
Woodwork is an activity that helps service users to develop their skills and knowledge through practical workshops, which involve the building and creation of items out of wood such as bird boxes, candle holders, door plaques, plant pots and much more. The items are then sold on, of which the monies raised is then re-invested back into the woodwork to enable it to become the groups own small enterprise.
The Steam n' Coffee Shop, located within the Junction, is Innovations professionally run coffee shop that offers training to equip adults with disabilities the necessary skills and experience to progress towards paid employment. Offering a wide range of food and drink, it is a welcoming place where all can come and relax.
Arts & Crafts:
The aim of this activity is to encourage creativity which is a useful skill in life and gives individuals the opportunity to create something unique out of materials. It is essentially a positive way for service users to express their thoughts and ideas. In addition, it helps individuals to make choices as they will have to decide on which tools to use, how to decorate their crafts and how to use them once finished.
