Activities on Offer

 Life Skills

With a number of our members living independently, we aim to provide appropriate advice and support in order for them to achieve their full potential in their own home.

Arts & Crafts, Media, IT and Photography

We offer the opportunity to stretch imagination and develop creativity. From expressive painting and digital photography to publishing newsletters.

Numeracy and Literacy

Sessions are in place to enable opportunies in building and improving core skills. These are not carried out in a formal classroom setting, but through fun activities and games e.g. 'Hangman'

Educational Trips

Our members feel it is important to gain knowledge and understanding of their surroundings, the wider environment and other cultures. All trips are chosen and researched by members.

Drama, Music and Dance

A favourite with all, as this aids self expression whilst also promoting confidence and self-esteem

We have previously worked in partnership with Find Your Voice, an organisation that promotes improvements in mental health and wellbeing, confidence and creativity through singing. We are currently working on a new production incorporating makaton.

Product Design

Members take a hands on approach in designing items such as plant troughs etc. and then turn concept into reality in the safe environment of our woodwork studio.


The Hive provides a number of recreational and social events. Including bowling, trips out and themed activities e.g. Haloween etc.

Exercise and Healthy Living

We have a qualified fitness instructor that provides 2 weekly sessions of gentle exercise. This not only helps our members with physical fitness that improves co-ordination but also helps with mental well being and team building. Advice on healthy living, personal hygiene, healthy eating and self care is also provided.

Work Experience

Our in house charity shop provides  members with a range of opportunities e.g. customer service skills, stock control, handling money etc. These opportunities help build confidence and the chance to learn new skills.
