Bromford Support, a local specialist support provider, are hosting a series of drop-in sessions at ‘The Hub’, providing help and advice for anyone in the local community who suffers from a learning disability. The drop-ins are also open to family members and care workers.
The Hub, based in the Stratford Cricket Club on Swan Nest Lane, will host its first event on Thursday 16th May from 1-3pm. The ‘Transition’ drop-in session is aimed at school leavers and young adults with learning difficulties, helping them plan their next big step in life. Advice will include handling finances, finding a home and looking for work or training, with representatives from the Citizens Advice Bureau also on hand.
On Monday 20th May from 1- 4.30pm, the Hub will be holding a ‘Health Matters’ Event in association with Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust. Community learning disability nurses will be on hand to offer health checks and advice about visiting your doctor, as well as support on keeping fit and healthy.
Hub Advisor Jessica Tunley said, “These drop-in sessions are incredibly important to our customers as they provide a fantastic opportunity to get information straight from experts, but in a safe and supporting environment.
“For us, partnership working is important and we want to provide even more events for the local community, both great support sessions and fun social activities like music sessions.”
The Stratford Hub is open to anyone with learning disabilities to attend and is open Monday to Friday, with a Hub Advisor on site to lend a hand during those times.
