There are various methods of engagement that are used to encourage our clients to socialise and express themselves as well as build confidence.
As well as one-to-one meetings and joining steering groups, our clients are encouraged to participate in specific projects and activities like cooking, art, sport, drama and music. They can also participate in fun days out to places like Thorpe Park, Trampoline Parks, Climbing, etc.. These activities enable clients and staff to socialise, build relationships, learn new skills and express themselves.
“I participated in boxing lessons whilst at Mary Seacole which helped me to channel my anger appropriately. I have fond memories from my time with Mary Seacole; building friendships and participating in the Mary Seacole Housing Association Sports Day – I never enjoyed group events before; but at Mary Seacole, I was always made to feel comfortable.” – Solance
