STRIDE is coming to Uttlesford!
STRIDE is a six-month life skills programme for young adults with a disability, aged 19-25. The sessions cover healthy living, personal care, household tasks, how to keep safe, social and communication skills and much more, enabling members to develop essential skills to live a happy, healthy and more independent life. STRIDE has been running successfully in Harlow since September 2021 and we’re thrilled to be launching the second programme in Uttlesford this April.
STRIDE sessions so far have included; social interaction and communication, a healthy movement workshop, domestic and household skills, employment skills including interview practice, healthy cooking and safe food preparation, digital skills and more. Members have taken trips including a visit to a café to practice money management and social interaction and the laundrette during a domestic skills session.
