Our Programme Offer

  • Our daily activities will be led by the young adults themselves depending on their social care targets, their abilities and taking into consideration their likes and dislikes.


  • Our main aims are to enhance their independence and build upon their life skills, consider and understand personal health and wellbeing, take part in community activities with movements towards being an active member of a community and also to have fun and make friends along the way.


  • Each week will be planned in advance so the young adults are aware of what they will be doing and if they need to bring anything specific for the activities. There will be themed weeks throughout the year to celebrate and recognise particular events that happen such as Remembrance day, World Mental health day, Internet Safety week and some less recognised ones such as Disney day, National tell a joke day and National fish and chip day. As part of valuing the diversity of our young adults we will also recognise any cultural or religious festivities as well as specific disability awareness days.


  • We will take into consideration the needs of each young adult who attends Sapphire and try to make their experience as fun and rewarding as possible
