A big part of our work is with the local Special Needs Schools. We currently work with four schools with forty six pupils attending weekly; accessing a total of fifty two days. They are able to take part in the activities we offer, which help them develop the skills and abilities they need to cope with life’s challenges, to interact with the wider community and enjoy and improved quality of life.
Our work with people not meeting Statutory Funding Criteria
A number of people attending MK SNAP are deemed to be too able to meet Social Services criteria for support, but are not able enough to access or succeed on any of the training or support opportunities offered by the Employment Services, or other training providers. They are left in limbo, getting more and more disillusioned and isolated. It is not our policy to exclude people from our services purely on the basis that they cannot pay to attend. However, this means that we have to find alternative sources of funding in order to provide the services to these individuals.
We also offer free “taster” sessions to individuals considering using our services. These sessions allow them to try our services and for both parties to assess what help they need. From this we are to decide how many days a week they will attend, how long and then develop a specific individual training plan to enable them to achieve their objectives. We currently have three people permanently attending for a total of ten days a week unfunded.
We normally provide a further 200 days to people for four day “tasters” and short term placements.
"MK SNAP has enabled us to extend the curriculum that we offer to our students and make them feel that they can take part in out of school work experience just as their mainstream peers do" THE REDWAY SCHOOL
