JTC’s Life Skills Groups are for young people and adults with learning difficulties / disabilities. The groups meet weekly during term times and participants join in drama based activities which are designed to be fun, increase confidence, and enhance life skills which can lead to greater independence. There is also the opportunity to join in short performances and gain awards. Group facilitators have many years’ experience of running drama groups for those with learning difficulties and everyone is assured of a warm welcome.
This group will be dedicated to those at a beginner – intermediate level. Members of this group will typically require individual support and guidance in order to take part. Factsheet-Macc Wed
