August – What have our services been up to?

With the warm weather and lockdown restrictions easing, the people we support have been able to safely leave their services more to enjoy their local community. Check out what they’ve been up to – in and out of their homes.

August saw Achieve together running a mini-Olympics which you can read about here. Our homes also hosted the annual Supportive Therapies Festival which involved supporting people with PMLD with different activities. You can see the Supportive Therapies Festival here.

The people we support at Ty Coedwig are hard at work in a local allotment that they recently purchased.

The end of August also brought us Notting Hill Carnival. This obviously had to be at home this year. But the people we support at Honeywood had a great time nonetheless!
