Adults with Additional Needs

We have expanded our programmes to facilitate tours for adults with additional needs who are moving towards greater independence and possibly independent living.  The programme will still be based mainly on our Primary 7 curriculum but we can tailor some of our scenarios to the needs of other groups.  Although we have a wide range of scenarios available we suggest that groups base their tour on only those scenarios relevant.

Before your group visits the centre we require a group leader(s) to carry out a previsit.  This will allow centre staff and the group leader(s) the opportunity to identify the specific needs of the group, discuss the most suitable scenarios and give the leaders the chance to see the centre.  The cost of the group visit is £8.60 plus VAT per adult taking part in the tour, there is no charge for group leaders.   If attending in the evening the £112 minimum charge detailed above will apply..   

Older People

Our programme for older people focuses on safety in the home and includes general home safety, fire safety, online safety and bogus callers.  Other aspects can be introduced if relevant to the group.  We would suggest before your group visits the centre that the group leader contact us to arrange a pre visit and discuss the programme in more detail.  This will allow centre staff and the group leader(s) the opportunity to identify the specific needs of the groups and tailor the programme to meet them.  The cost of the group visit is £8.60 plus VAT per adult taking part in the tour, there is no charge for groups leaders/accompanying staff.

Family Groups

Supported by Electrical Safety First Fire Safety Fund the centre will be open for tours by family groups on specific dates in the school holidays.  Dates for 2019 will be published on this site shortly.
