We do a range of fun and interesting activities which help to develop social, health and educational skills
We believe having a good range of skills is an important way to keep safe, feel happier and be more independent. At Leep1 you can learn skills in fun ways, whether that be money skills, office, or art and creative skills
OFFICE & MONEY SKILLS
Our members are actively involved with the office work at Leep1 from answering the phone, updating our social media, organising and planning trips, making flyers to creating PowerPoint presentations for the monthly People’s First meetings. Our members are also supported to improve their money handling skills and computer skills
Creative hands is our fun sewing group that takes place every Wednesday and focuses on needlework, knitting, cross stitch, tapestry and Upcycling. This is a great way to develop your needle work skills, have fun and make new friends!
If you love art then this is the group for you! Working with East Street Arts (Adult Learning Programme) our Thursday afternoon art classes allows us to express ourselves and use our imaginations. We have learnt different techniques in painting and crafts with something different each week.
Literacy group helps to build day to day English and Language skills. The group aims to improve reading, writing, spelling and pronounciation. This group also builds up confidence to speak in front of others, such as speaking up and sharing opinions in meetings and reading out presentations.
Every Monday and Wednesday afternoon, we run our popular cooking group for adults with learning disabilities who enjoy cooking, or want to learn how to cook and become more independent. We create delicious dishes each week using easy recipes that the group choose. If you are interested in joining please contact us at Leep1 for details.
“ I enjoy coming to Leep1 and joining in with all the activities”
