The day centre is about to offer life skills and vocational training programmes alongside its usual timetable of popular activities. Optima Care is now registered with ASDAN: a British charity organisation that provides programmes tailored to young people post school age.
In line with our new transition services for school leavers, we wanted to help ensure continuity of some of the life skills and vocational training that our young people will have started at school.
We’re currently assessing the many programmes provided by ASDAN, with a view to putting together a selection that will be offered at the day centre. Rest assured that much of the usual, and very popular, activities at the day centre will remain in place. We have plans to add an extra room to help ensure that this happens.
