The Hamlet is a new innovative approach to the provision of social care for young adults with additional needs that offers its trainees a 6 year programme in a supportive work related environment to develop skills linked with a range of different vocations. It will also be integral in integrating young people within their local area, supporting them to develop their confidence, and skills in a supportive environment to progress both within and as part of the wider community. We aim to help our young adult reach their potentials and achieve their aspirations.

The Hamlet runs work based programmes/ businesses ensuring very individual programmes of support and training from a well-trained, experienced, dedicated and motivational staff team through ‘real-life’ employment and business opportunities and day to day experiences within a community based environment We offer our Trainees the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and take part in a range of other social activities.

The provision currently runs 5 days a week – Monday to Friday term time only

We are extremely proud of the achievements and progress made by both trainees and staff at The Hamlets in such a short space of time which is testament to the dedication, commitment, enthusiasm and expertise of all the staff.

The continuing development of an individual inclusive practice within a community based environment caters for each young person’s specific needs offering a flexible, purposeful quality of provision supporting the ongoing development of independence, life skills, social skills, communication skills and employability skills.

We have an annual intake of up to 6 trainees (equivalent to 5 full time places – depending on the number of days requested the number of trainees may alter).
