Raising funds for adults with Autism and learning disabilities
Creating Adventures was created to bring laughter, stimulation and enrichment to the lives of adults aged 18+ with Autism and additional needs. For many, age is merely a number and they still want to enjoy many of the activities they will have loved as a child but are not available as an adult or sadly, deemed by society, to be socially unacceptable. Creating Adventures is about breaking down those perceptions and barriers that exist in the community and giving adults in need the activities that they want to enjoy. We are able to achieve this through music, art, horticulture and sport.
We offer experiences that bring a twinkle to the eyes of our adults with autism and additional needs. From art projects to sports, singing to Zumba, we help our service users – in Trafford and Warrington – access a better quality of life.
‘As a mother of two special needs adults a lot of leisure and nurturing activities that would be fun and enriching to do are not readily available locally. Those that are sometimes come at a premium cost. A lot of challenging behaviour can be tempered by exercise and stimulating activity. I have seen this first hand, especially with my daughter, Carey. Being taken out on a regular basis, I have watched her blossom and become calmer. A lot of frustration can be channelled into walking, hydro play, bike riding, sensory play, crafts etc to name but a few. This is not just about creating adventures but new and rewarding experiences for a minority that deserve to experience what the majority take for granted.’ Judith Bowen (parent)
