GET SMART Project Launches!

We are pleased to announce our GET SMART project, created earlier this year, has officially launched! The three interactive smart screens have been installed at two of our day opportunities; Innage Lane in Bridgnorth and Our Space in Ellesmere, as well as our new Supported Living accommodation, Arden Place in Birmingham.  

The people we support and staff are getting to grips with the screens and what they can do, assisted by training and support from our Digital Outreach worker. The people we support are also working on putting together activity programmes for next year, deciding on what activities, training, educational and social programmes they would like to do. These programmes will be shared out to the wider community for other people with learning disabilities, carers, and their families to join in.  We currently co-host a Flamingo Lounge Social Club which is a Friday Night disco online. We have been able to share the link via the screens to other groups like MENCAP. 

As you can see from the photos the screens are already a big hit!  

GET SMART is more than three Smart screens.  We want to provide opportunities for the people we support and open these activities to the wider community for other adults with learning disabilities.   

We would like to send our thanks to Severn Trent Community Fund and the Basil Houghton Memorial Trust for helping us fund our GET SMART project.  

Watch this space for more GET SMART updates!
