Some have a learning disability; some have had accidents or a stroke, and some have mental health issues. The Day Workshop provides opportunities for our workers to be involved in a wide range of work and skills; crafts, woodwork, gardening, animal husbandry, and refurbishing tools within a social group, giving individuals a big choice and inclusion.
Second hand tools are refurbished and sent to Africa to be used by local craftsmen, many of whom have a disability.The Day Workshop is very much a part of the local community who visit in groups or individually to purchase hand-made items for sale in our shop.

Being away from family and friends hasn't been easy. But here I found a second family, a community that has supported me during all this time. A SENSE OF BELONGING. Thanks for every moment I have had here! Is not a goodbye, is just a see you later. Rosa
