The Independent Living Programme (ILP) is made up of a small group of young people who have been referred to ourselves from the SH&SCT and is a year long programme.
Each week those involved come along to develop personally and socially and also to have increased skills that they can then use in every day life.
During the programme, staff, volunteers and young people meet each Thursday evening to help plan and prepare meals for each other along with developing a year long scrapbook. This helps monitor the progression of where each participant is at. Along with the work we do in the YMCA, we spend time one Saturday each month by going on different outings such as to the park, cinema, bowling and loads more. Participants are also given the opportunity to atted a one or two night residential through out the year.
Check out some pictures below of the things we have been doing so far.
This programme is funded by SH&SCT
