Maundy Relief Life Skills
Alongside our frontline services, we are committed to helping people lead fuller, more creative lives, as well as increasing their opportunities to access education and employment.
A variety of life skills activities have taken place at Maundy Relief each week since January 2010. Funding from the Drugs and Alcohol Action Team in 2012 has enabled us to deliver life-skills activities on a part time basis. With this in mind we are now delivering a fishing group, healthy eating / cooking, computers / work-skills and the allotment group. The Maundy Relief art group also takes place on a weekly basis.
The fishing group in 2012 had eleven members and we have been able to purchase fishing licences and lodge licences through funding from the Fairshare Trust. The computer group continues to take place on a weekly basis and individuals who are interested in work skills including producing a CV or looking at interview techniques are able to do so with Jenny the Life-skills Coordinator on a one to one basis.
The allotment group has taken place for two growing seasons. During the spring / summer of 2013 we will have two small allotment plots to maintain. If you would like to get involved or help out with this activity please contact Maundy Relief to enquire. The healthy eating / cooking group are meeting on a weekly basis.
Many of the individuals now accessing the cooking group have limited cooking skills and the group has adapted to accommodate their needs. The group are learning the essential basic cooking skills needed to enable them to progress from supported housing to successful independent living.
We have attended Hothersall Lodge Adventure Centre on three occasions most recently attending in the summer of 2012. The adventure centre provides the opportunity for our guests and volunteers to try canoeing, orienteering, caving, climbing and archery. Some of the individuals attending would not have had the opportunity to experience these activities if Maundy Relief had not accessed the funding to enable the activities to take place.
