What we do:
Right Steps is an exciting new service operating from the village of West Bagborough, providing meaningful and high quality day opportunities for adults, aged 18 and over. We operate two streams to our day care. The first, day care 5 days a week for adults with a learning disability. The second, Companionship care for the elderly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
At Right Steps we put the students and clients using our service at the centre of everything that we do. We strongly believe that the service has to fit the customer and not the other way around.
We have our own space complete with toilet facilities and kitchen area, open plan creative space and an office. We also have parking and an acre of land to the rear.
Our small, friendly and dedicated team of staff are able to provide as much ‘outside’ activities as required and wanted. These include: local woodland walks, seaside activities, woodworking, small animal care (chickens, ducks, rabbits), allotment maintenance, den building and fire making, survival activities and growing our own vegetables to name just a few!
We can also offer a lot to people who prefer to remain indoors but who still want a stimulating and engaging programme of activity. Inside we can offer cooking and baking, arts and crafts, woodwork, computer skills, wreath making and floristry, science, dance and movement and so much more. The list is endless and always growing.
In addition, we take regular trips to farms, theme parks, local fayres and fetes………anything we can!
We also encourage and seek out employment opportunities for our students through our links with the local farmers, pubs and cafes, the Parish Council, and our local pre-school and primary school. Most excitingly, we can offer employment opportunities through our very own market stall, where the people we work with are encouraged to make, bake and grow their own products and produce which they can then sell at a local weekly market.
This encourages self-worth and self-satisfaction whilst growing vital life skills and communication, interaction and relationships with the wider community. All monies raised are reinvested in materials and activities, which means that we have a very healthy monthly budget, set aside, to be spent on activities and resources to get the very most out of every opportunity.
Our daily cost for full daycare for Adults with Learning Disabilities is £50 which covers all activities, refreshments and trips, and we provide a complimentary, fully escorted bus service right to your door. We also run short residential trips and breaks for an additional cost.
Our Elderly Companionship day care packages differ on how much of the day you wish to spend with us. Whether you want to be active on the allotment, bake in the kitchen or just sit and chat or play cards – we are able to cater for your needs.
A full day at Right Steps Companionship daycare would be £30 to include a 2 course lunch, return travel and refreshments throughout the day.
1/2 day am/pm will be £15 with the choice to add on lunch for £3.50 and travel for £2.50.
