We offer great supported activities in Oldham including Animation, our History Club, Media group and more.
In the lovely setting of Alexandra Park, our Oldham base The Boathouse is always a hive of activity. The range of activities includes our History Club. Clients research specific historical periods, developing their IT skills in the process. They compile detailed, often beautiful information boards and build their creative talents constructing models and other art works.
Animation is also very popular with clients. They make their own stop motion films using models and sets that they craft themselves. There are also general craft sessions, and gardening roles out in the beautiful park for those who love the outdoors. Under the Microscope is another great project, exploring the natural world of the park just outside the door. The Boathouse Cafe, run by Pure, also provides cafe training (note: currently subject to restrictions.) This is proven to enhance confidence and communication skills. And how about our Media club? Here clients compile the very popular Boathouse monthly newletter.
If you are looking for our Supported Woodwork group, please note this has now relocated to The Woodshack in Chadderton. Click the link for more information on our dedicated, fully equipped workshop. It’s an ideal safe and supported space to learn and practice woodwork skills and practical artefacts such as bird tables.
