Choices Day Opportunities
Choices Day Opportunities
Choices have been using Wallace House as a community base since 2006. They are a user-led service providing day opportunities for people with a learning disability. Choices encourages many skills including social activities, life skills, sport, swimming, art and craft, trips out, and cooking. It is also a meeting place where friendships are formed and new experiences are gained. They are in the centre of town in a safe and happy environment.
Working World Evesham is a training centre for people with a learning disability who need a little extra support getting into the workplace. They currently support over 30 clients, aged between 19 and 53 years old. Some of their clients go on to work for other local employers, some combine a part time job with coming to Working World, some just love to participate at Working World. In addition to the work activities, they provide a range of social activities for clients, their families and their carers. These include evening entertainments, trips to the gym and swimming sessions, outings and an annual residential holiday.
