Programmes and Projects

Options in Life runs a varied programme of social inclusion and skills
development projects for young adults who have a learning disability and
additional support requirements. The aim is to bring out the best in people by
helping them make friends, gain new skills and realise their potential.

The focus of our Recreation Programme is to have fun while pushing
boundaries by trying new and challenging activities and encouraging team
work. Activities include things like rock climbing, kayaking, sailing, survival
training, go kart racing as well as animal handling and visits to museums and
science centres.

Our Employability and Peer Mentoring Project gives the opportunity to
develop new skills which will help to lead towards employment, while
encouraging the participants to support and help one another. Experiences
have included a course on zoo keeping, grounds and path maintenance, stable
management, working in a café, pottery, printing, glass fusion and financial
literacy.

Cookery and Kitchen Health and Safety classes, run in partnership with Fife
College, are helping our young people to gain skills and work towards more
independent living.

Our newest venture is our Options In Life Pop-Up Café which runs every
Wednesday between 10.30 and 3pm at Ceres Community Café, 38 Main Street,
Ceres KY15 5NA. Come along and enjoy fresh homemade soup and bread,
toasties, croissants and a selection of cakes.
