Out, Not In!
We recognise how difficult it is to sometimes access different community activities and this can lead to isolation and low self esteem. Our Out, Not In! Project aims to encourage people to get out more, meet friends and make new ones all whilst having an enjoyable and relaxing time. We go to various different places, such as Bounce and Pizza Hut, the cinema, bowling and Prezzo, the theatre, Colchester Zoo and the pantomime. The list is endless and we are always open to suggestions.
We cover various age ranges depending on the activity. Some activities are for 16+, whilst some are 8 years to 16 years. The level of support varies from being able to manage in a small group to needing 1:1 for the entire activity. We also support those who have personal care requirements.
Check out our spring planner below for an example of the activities we get up to!
