This week I had an opportunity to visit Yawn Life a day facility for sociable adults with learning difficulties. The centre and services are a community interest company.
As one enters this calm and friendly environment you are met with delightful and professional staff who provide amazing care, social activities and encouragement for their clients. It is apparent from the start that the young adults are very happy and safe and enjoying all aspects of this social yet continued learning facility.
I was also privileged to meet and talk with Jeanette and Julie who run and founded this brilliant centre. An amazing couple of women who are extremely dedicated and passionate about what they do and this shows in the excellent service they provide, their happy team of staff and of course most importantly their contented clients.
Not only do they run an efficient and varied set of activities for their clients to take part in, they also offer practical support and advice to carers which is a godsend! I came away from my visit very impressed and feeling somewhat humbled.
