Activities Provided by ‘Looking Forward’

20140121_185927

Individual choice combined with support are central to the ‘age-appropriate’ activities we provide for people with learning disabilities

At Looking Forward Activities, all our Members have a big say in the type of activity in which they would like to participate. An additional factor in the success of our approach has been the support provided for Members, their families and carers. On a personal level, being part of a Group that provides access to mainstream social and community activities gives Members the confidence to become involved. The flexibility this creates in reflected in the range of activities listed in the Table below. Very often, a programme of activities is devised which is based on individual choices. This ranges from deciding where to go for day trips and holidays, where to go for lunch, or which social events should feature on a week-by-week basis.
