    We are so excited to announce that we are now seeking initial interest for our two award winning community based programmes, starting in September 2018! 

    Join us at The Founders Studio, Millbrook, Guildford GU1 3TZ on Wednesday 21st March from 6.30pm-8pm. You will have the chance to meet our halow activity leaders and hear just how our programmes are making a profound impact to young people with a learning disability. 

    Building Futures (BFG) is an exciting training and development programme for young people with a learning disability. Building Futures is a full-time option that runs 4 days per week. 

    A Reason to Get Up (ARTGU) aims to engage young people aged 16+ with a learning disability in meaningful daytime activities within the Surrey community. There are a variety of sessions available, on a half day or full day basis.

    You can read more about our Building Futures Groups and our A Reason to Get Up activities here

    Both programmes are aimed at young people with a learning disability. We provide the opportunity for further learning and meaningful occupation for people who are no longer in full-time formal education. The aim of both programmes is to further build on each person’s learning, and support them to aspire to and achieve further goals in their life. Some young people come to us straight from education, whilst others may try other things first and come to us further down the line.  

    halow was founded by the parents of five young people with a learning disability, and all of our services have been established to try and meet the unmet needs of the now 170+ young people we support. This is particularly true with our learning programmes, which recognise the fact that many young people with learning disability leave formal education with the potential for further learning about the next steps in their life and how they can build their skills to get there.

    For example, work may not be an immediate option for some young people so they need other means of learning new things, building their confidence, gaining new skills and challenging themselves, to aid their growth and development and prevent them becoming socially isolated. 

    We look forward to welcoming you on the day!
