<p>The excitement has been building as the holiday season is now well underway and we’ve had weeks of glorious sunshine. Holidays are planned months in advance and our service users, who have acquired brain injuries, or learning disabilities and complex needs, are supported in choosing where they would like to go.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/summer-holidays-activities/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> One of the most popular activities that we arrange in-house for our service users is the weekly bowling sessions that we hold in the main hall at The Mews each Monday.</p> <p>We are fortunate to have Duggie Mitchell on our team, who is an experienced bowling instructor and has played competitive bowls for 35 years with success at Club, County and National levels.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/1011-2/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> In May 2012, The Richardson Partnership for Care became an officially-recognised accreditation centre with ASDAN – the Awards Scheme Development Accreditation Network. The organisation provides courses to thousands of training providers, which offer flexible ways to accredit skills development and enrichment activities.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/structured-skills-development-adults-learning-difficulties/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> <a href="http://www.wildsci.co.uk/">Wild Science</a>, a specialist animal education group, brought some inhabitants of their ‘mini zoo’ to The Mews recently, where service users from all of our homes could take part in an ‘animal therapy’ session.</p> <p>For service users who have mobility difficulties, or for people who would find visiting a real zoo an over-stimulating environment, the session presented an excellent opportunity to learn about some unusual creatures.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/wild-science-brings-some-animal-magic-to-the-mews/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>



<p> We all enjoy a holiday, but for service users with acquired brain injuries they are also an important part of their rehabilitation. A small group from our home in Boughton Green Road, along with care and support staff have just returned from a week in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/summer-holiday-helps-rehabilitation-for-service-users-with-acquired-brain-injuries/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>

<p> Finally, after months of planning, the Service Users at our Boughton Green Rd Home set-out on their summer holiday for 2012. This year they chose to go to a Haven’s resort in Lincolnshire – called <a href="http://www.haven.com/parks/lincolnshire/golden-sands/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Golden Sands</a>. And the name says it in a nutshell!→ <a href="https://www.richardsoncares.co.uk/summer-holiday-2012-lincolnshire-for-boughton-green-rd/" class="read-more">Read the rest </a></p>
