At present we are able to offer weekly sessions to 10 children / teenagers at our base in Abbots Leigh, Bristol and to 6 children / teenagers at our outreach service in High Littleton, Somerset. We have a waiting list of 6 children. All of the children work towards short term aims (termly) and long term aims; achievement of these aims demonstrates the progress the children are making along with the development of functional skills and the confidence using their skills in unfamiliar situations.
