Supporting people to reach new heights
We support everyone who uses our service to follow their own interests in the local community, as Scheme Manager Maggie explains:
“When Michael first moved into Kings Road, we noticed that he had a passion for climbing, but it wasn't always in the most appropriate place. A member of staff had the great idea of taking him to a climbing wall and since then Michael has become a very competent indoor climber.
“As well as fulfilling his urge to climb he is developing his skills in listening and following instruction. He has excellent flexibility and balance which amazes everyone who watches him as he is totally blind. Other climbers using the centre watch in awe as Michael locates the “holds” just by following verbal instructions. Michael is getting so much out of the experience. He is meeting different people and developing his social skills. The grin on his face as he climbs tells us how much he enjoys it!”
