Lottery Trust boost for disabled adults

Grant helps Children's Centre project grow

A project to assist young, disabled adults to live more independently and find jobs has been launched, supported by a grant from Manx Lottery Trust.

The Bloom Project, a pilot scheme run by the Children’s Centre, has been developed to help young adults with additional needs find work experience and prepare them for employment.
 
The scheme is open to young people who have previously been involved with the Children’s Centre Inclusion Project, and aims through group work to help build confidence and reduce the risk of becoming socially isolated.

The project will offer the chance to learn and develop skills through farming, horticultural work and activities at The Children’s Centre’s Community Farm.
