There might also be group activities that more than one person living at Ivytree might take part in, either at the home or out and about. Young people help plan the activities they want to take part in.
Some of the sorts of activities include going swimming, hiking, to the cinema, bowling, visiting local parks, ice skating, playing football and other sports, enjoying meals and the opportunity to be involved in local groups. There’s bike riding, shopping, learning new skills, beauty and spa treatments, parks and playgrounds. Young people can also take part in hobbies and interests they may have such as dancing, gymnastics, singing, music, model making, horse riding, fishing and many more.
Ivytree House places a strong emphasis on understanding difference, diversity, and inclusion with effective policies on equality and diversity, anti-bullying, and special educational needs. We encourage and respect the cultural, linguistic, and religious diversity of young people, which in turn promotes a sense of identity and belonging.
