Kaleidoscope

What is it?

Kaleidoscope is for adults with disabilities or long-term health conditions. Based on the enterprise programme used by colleges, the group helps you gain the skills you need for volunteering, work or training by taking part in activities that everyone in the group enjoys, eg art, photography and making and buying items to sell. Any money raised by the group is put back into the group. Taking part in the group increases social skills, encourages independence and combats social isolation. A key part is to increase confidence to go into work, training or employment.
