We believe in inspiring our students to enjoy, learn and create.

As a Not for Profit organisation in the heart of Sheffield, we provide quality and affordable day opportunities for adults with learning and support needs. Established in 2010, we are celebrating 12 years of providing quality service to our students.

Our Students

Our Students are given the opportunity to work with every member of our staff team and each other. We promote individual work and collaborative projects.

We get to know our students by finding out their likes and dislikes, and what they want to achieve. This is incorporated into their profiles and personal plans.

Differentiation in the delivery of our programmes is then key to this success. We acknowledge, praise and record our students’ progression and achievements on a daily basis.

We provide a friendly and accessible environment, which promotes positive engagement.

Our Values

  • Creating equal opportunities which are affordable and tailored to our students’ needs, wishes & skills
  • Providing a safe, relaxed, inclusive and engaging environment
  • Overcoming barriers and increasing self-confidence & esteem
  • Promoting goals, diversity & progression
  • Keeping our students active
  • Encouraging problem solving & enhancing choice
  • Continuing our established partnerships in the community
