For the majority of teenagers and young adults, college is an exciting time when they gain more choice, independence and freedom. We believe this should be no different for young adults with disabilities who attend Hannahwood. Our purpose built further education college, which is affiliated with City College Plymouth, is complete with an art and enterprise room, an IT lab, a fully equipped music and recording room. We run accredited courses with a focus on Skills for Independence. We’ve even got a student union where our students can relax and unwind.
At Hannahwood our young adults can feel at home, comfortable with their peer group and most importantly, feel valued as an individual. They are able to explore independence and choice, be empowered to use and act on their rights and achieve goals and milestones.
A full range of stimulating activities is on offer, promoting skills for living and the exploration of independence. In addition, continued input from all therapy departments means that communication, physiotherapy and mobility support will all help to support growth and personal development.
