Opportunities for All

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn recently went on a tour around the Old Dairy, opposite Graves Park, to see the amazing work Spectrum Active are doing for adults with learning disabilities. She met Duncan Whitham, Spectrum Active’s operations manager, who started the project and transformed the dilapidated farm house and dairy into a number of workshops and activity rooms.

 

At the Dairy there are many opportunities for the trainees, from woodwork to horticulture.  There are also facilities open to the public with a shop, which sells the crafts the trainees have made, and a café which offers a variety of beverages and hot and cold food. 

 

Spectrum Active aim to provide people with learning difficulties an experience of the world of work. They also help people to develop important social skills and self confidence, focusing on what they can do and not what they can’t do.

 

Meg said:

 

“The work that has been done here is truly amazing. I am grateful to Duncan and his team for all the hard work they are doing to provide people with learning difficulties the same opportunities as those without.

 

Growing up around here I know the area well and am glad the building is being put to good use.”
