We have set up our own day service, providing personalised activities for all of our service users.
We have been busy celebrating equality and diversity week, friendship week and mental health awareness week- just to name a few!
We have been supporting our service users to contact their families and friends through the use of FaceTime and Zoom.
We have also taken part in the ‘loo roll challenge’, which was great fun and enabled our service users to feel connected to their family members.
