The ABLE Project- Learning to Grow

Learning to Grow offers diverse activities, aimed at skills training, personal development and social integration for individuals attending forensic and/or health services within Wakefield.

ABLE staff work with individuals and groups on specific activities to meet the needs and requirements of the group. Examples of activities offered include:

• Fish farming
• Gardening and horticulture
• Woodwork and craft
• Basic construction
• Painting and sculpture
• Creating jams and preserves
• Animal tracking and wildlife surveys
• Conservation and habitat creation

The project aims to promote recovery, good health and wellbeing by increasing self-esteem and self-confidence. Attendees have the opportunity to develop functional skills, whilst experiencing the therapeutic benefits of working creatively, and developing an innovative legacy project of benefit to the wider community, whilst providing a sense of self-worth.

Once the placements are complete ABLE aims to develop ongoing opportunities for service users leaving forensic services and entering community settings.
