New Options provides a flexible day service to adults with moderate learning disabilities based on a person-centred approach, offering choice and variety but most importantly independence. An engaging programme of activities is provided to stimulate and stretch the abilities of our service users designed in partnership with customers and wider support services in the borough. The well established staff team bring a wealth of experience to the service.
The centre is a purpose built light, bright, modern building. The interior design features a training suite, fully accessible wheelchair adapted large kitchen, a large hall with innovative sound, lighting and visual equipment. Each room has access to its own outside area. The single storey building layout enables our more independent service users to roam freely to access the multiple areas.
We provide a programme of support and activities designed and influenced by our service users personalised to meet their needs and promote independence. Activity sessions include;
Art and Design, History and Culture, Crafts and Sewing, Floristry, Woodwork, Music and Movement, Horticulture, Information Technology and Media, Health and Beauty.
Our life skills programme includes; Healthy meals preparation, Relationship Advice and Guidance, Hate crime prevention forum, public transport training, Current Affairs, Admin and Reception work experience.
As well as weekly visits from nurses at our centre to provide a check on blood pressure and weight, we also work with specialist advisers and will refer for specialist support regarding nutrition, wheelchair services, speech and language assessments and occupational therapy.
We have an extensive community access programme which enables our service users to experience community based activities as well as what takes place at the centre. Our immediate environment provides both direct access to Albany Park and to Albany Leisure centre.
