Ambitions Day Opportunities is aimed at young people with learning disabilities aged 16 and over. We have our own base in the grounds of Stamford College. Ambitions can offer day provision on a young person’s day off from college and or during half terms and summer holiday periods. In addition to this we offer a positive progression for when your young people complete their education.
Ambitions is currently open three days a week, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday all year round apart from bank holidays and a short Christmas break. We aim to start Wednesday provision in the near future.
ACTIVITIES and FACILITIES
Ambitions is delivered from a designated self-contained area in the grounds of Stamford College. We have a fully accessible kitchen, large day room and an enterprise/art and craft room, in addition to this we have our own self-contained garden. Ambitions has use of a mini bus for local trips and days out further afield.
Wherever possible, we support people to participate in ordinary community activities in ordinary places whilst meeting the needs of the individual to do so.
Ambitions is a client led activity-based provision, promoting choice and independence. Our belief is that all people have contributions to make in society and accessing services in their local communities can raise their profile for better community inclusion.
Ambitions costs start from £65 per day which includes all refreshments but not lunch. This is payable by direct payments or self-funded. Clients can be assessed individually for more dedicated support where required. If you should require any advice on accessing direct payments. Then please contact me.
Arts and Craft
We enjoy arts and crafts which includes creative art using textiles, water colour, tie dye, drawing and many more.
We run our own Social Enterprise opportunities for service users to get involved in, whereby we assist in developing their work skills in our immediate environment. All profits are used for our service users and their chosen activities.
Sweet Treats Enterprise – Sweet cone making
Revitalised Enterprise – Upcycling projects
Charming Enterprise – Jewellery making
All items are sold at events and in the main College
Events and Fundraising
Ambitions run fundraising events throughout the year and love to host to their friends and family. Service users are involved with our fundraising through raffles, holding afternoon teas and taking part in sponsored activities. We also like to support local charities to give something back to the community.
Ambitions service users like to get out and about and have fun with their friends. Their favourite activities are theme parks, bowling, farms, museums, sports and having a game of pool at the pub.
Sports and Activities
Ambitions attends local inclusive sports groups for Boccia, adapted cycling, sailing and boxing. We encourage fitness through walking and group games as well as outdoor sports during the summer.
