Score Community Opportunities: video transcript

Claire Jackson, Support Manager:

Score Community Opportunities, we’re a city centre location in Hereford and our role is to enable people to access all kinds of experiences and opportunities that ordinarily they might not be able to do without the right support.

So we do a huge range of activities across the week. These include things like the basics that people really really enjoy, like pool and we do bowls.

We’re recently had a refurbishment so our art room is really now set up to be able to produce some really lovely pieces of art.

We’ve also recently developed a music session which is run by one of our bank support workers who’s a musician.

Man reading from a play script:

Juliet!

Claire Jackson:

We also do drama. So we have a drama group called Living Book. It’s a really successful group. The achievement and the sense of achievement that the people we support get from that is absolutely massive.

Woman reading from a play script:

What would he do If he called her name.

Claire Jackson:

In doing all the activities that we have to offer obviously that helps people develop new skills and experiences.  Building skills around even make a choice is massive.

One of the ways that we enable people to make choices is through an interactive planning board. It’s a very simple tool with pictures of the activities that we’re going to undertake or that are on offer that day. And the people we support can make their choices by moving their name card that they’ve designed onto a space near that picture on the board. And that’s been very successful.

Woman:

Dancing.

Man:

Go down the pool.

Woman:

Dancing.

Claire:

We do three different dance classes every week. The people we support absolutely adore being able to freestyle their moves. But also it’s part of an exercise, a healthier lifestyle. Dance is a really good way of expressing how you’re feeling, and we see that throughout our dance classes, they’re a joy to be part of.

Jonathan:

Dancing is wicked.

Claire Jackson:

So an awful lot of our activities are about being out in the community. We’ve had an awful of good feedback from families that feel that we’re a safe space for their person to be. People leave feeling really happy and content with all they’ve done that day.
