Yourway Support Services
Yourway has over twenty five years experience supporting people with learning disabilities and people with autism
We support adults with learning disabilities, we do this through enabling, supported living and our Cook Club, art studio and Connect Group day services.
At Cook Club our customers learn to plan and prepare healthy meals but they also learn budgeting, shopping, food hygiene and food safety. This can help to reduce the need for supported living or enabling support. We also visit local food based attractions to explore divers foods, customs and cooking skills.
- Cook Club runs every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
The Studio is designed for people with learning disabilities, autism, mental health challenges and early stage dementia. We offer a light, airy workspace for people who love making things and creating art using a variety of mediums.
- The Studio is open throughout the week; please contact us for specific session times
The Connect Group
At our Connect Group people can join a group of like minded people who want to go out and explore Devon and Cornwall. We organise trips every Wednesday and Friday where we visit local attractions like bowling, Footgolf and Adrenaline, but then also travel further to venues like Bodmin Jail, National Trust attractions and Pennywell Farm - no two weeks are the same.
- Connect Group runs Wednesdays and Fridays from 10am to 4pm
Book Club is a place for people of all abilities can enjoy the beauty of curling up with a good book. Participating in Book Club discussions does wonders for your communication skills, teaching you to listen to different points of view and different ways of expression. Great stories read in the traditional sense.
- Book Club runs on a Tuesday evening (every fortnight) from 5pm to 7pm
The Movie Club
Do you love movies? We do, that's why we formed our Movie Club using The Vue cinema at the Barbican Leisure park.
Every fortnight members meet up to watch a movie of their choice. So, if you love movies come and join us. Its a great way to meet people and make friends. Check out our Facebook page for information about the next movie we're planning to see.
If you plan to come join us with your support worker or carer, do you have a CEA Card. The CEA Card allows you to obtain ONE free ticket for the person who is accompanying you.
The free ticket is provided on the assumption the person who accompanies you is able to provide you with appropriate assistance and is conditional you purchase an applicable full price ticket for the same performance of the same film in the same auditorium.
Our customers can also access the extra activities we organise - we offer theatre trips through the year and short breaks/weekend trips.
In addition to these sessions and activities, we also offer art and craft sessions for under 18's during school holidays and art, craft and yoga sessions to parents and carers.
