My story

[p][b]Learning Disability facts[/b][/p][p]There are 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability.[/p][p]People with a learning disability have a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities which affect them for their whole life. [/p][p]A learning disability can be caused by brain damage suffered before, during or shortly after birth or due to genetic conditions.[/p][p]People with learning disabilities need different kinds of support. It is important to remember that by encouraging their strengths and helping them to overcome the things they find difficult, people with a learning disability can lead independent and fulfilling lives.[/p][p][b]About Grove Cottage:[/b][/p][p][b]Our Mission:[/b] to provide social and educational activities for people of all ages with a learning disability to develop their potential, help them to avoid social isolation by supporting lifelong friendships and to provide respite to their families and carers.[/p][p][b]Our Vision:[/b] a world in which every individual with a learning disability has the opportunity to learn and develop, integrate into society and exercise choices, and where their families can have a regular family life.[/p][p]In a ‘normal year’ Grove Cottage helps around 180 people of all ages from Bishop’s Stortford and the surrounding areas. We provide:[/p][p]• An Ofsted-regulated Special Needs Nursery[/p][p]• Speech and Language Therapy[/p][p]• Saturday Clubs[/p][p]• School Holiday Clubs[/p][p]• Performing Arts Club[/p][p]• Youth Club[/p][p]• Adult Social Clubs[/p][p]• Get Active Club[/p][p]• Grove Cottage Café at Thirst[/p][p]It goes without saying that this has been a very unusual year. Although Grove Cottage was forced to temporarily close its doors in March 2020 due to the Covid Pandemic, we continued to offer support in alternative ways. For example, during the summer we offered socially distanced Bingo sessions and outdoor Garden Chats, and distributed activity packs to keep our members busy at home and help them to feel connected. Any clubs that we were able to reintroduce had enhanced hygiene measures and social distancing. As the pandemic continues, we are making decisions on which clubs and services we can provide on a case-by-case basis, depending on whether we are able to adapt them and adhere to ongoing government guidelines.[/p][p] [/p][p]We need £400,000 every year to ensure we continue supporting our members and rely heavily on the local community who generously support us.
