Within the last 6 months we have taken our Social Club to a local community run café, The Snug.
Our young people benefit from being in the café as they can sit at tables with their peers and enjoy a cooked dinner. They can then go and either sit on the sofa for a chat with peers or sit with a book, the choice is theirs. They have become much more social with one another as well as making independent decisions with ordering their choice and food.
Parents and carers have told us how the young people enjoy being in a café setting and mixing with the local community. As well as the young people learning how to act appropriately within this setting, they are also learning about vital road safety skills as we walk to the café and back to our college base.
