All of our members are treated as individuals. Your well being is important to us, and our experienced staff recognise that we all have different skills, interests, strengths and support needs. We endeavour to help you feel at ease and as we get to know you, we tailor your care programme to your particular needs and abilities.
When you join our Buddies team you can enjoy our relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our members enjoy spending their time with us and they are always keen to help new people settle in and enjoy their day. Some come be to learn new skills, expand their existing knowledge and make new friends, but most importantly they have fun.
We recognise that some people do not always have many interests and just want to come to socialise and build their confidence. We are happy to support these members.
