Building confidence and improving wellbeing

We work in partnership with a variety of organisations that support people with disabilities.

Through learning with us, our learners build confidence, reduce isolation and improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

We deliver engaging and accessible adult education courses. From art and cookery, from fitness to employability.  

We’re looking for delivery partners to help us reach the people who need us the most. Whether it’s referring people to us or co-designing a programme that meets the needs of people with disabilities.

If you wish to discuss your needs further, then please contact Nick Howard, National Partnerships Manager on 07825 111536, or complete the webform below.

The impact of social prescribing

Around 10% of our learners have a physical health condition or illness. We know adult education is a great option when looking at social prescribing routes. Our courses support people to make positive life choices. Social prescribing is part of our offer because it helps improve health and wellbeing.

Our research demonstrates that following a SPƵվ course:  

  • 92% of our learners made fewer visits to their GP compared to the national average
  • 84% reported improvements in their overall wellbeing
  • 51% of learners reported an increase in self-confidence

Our social prescribing package consists of a choice of offers designed to protect and enhance wellbeing. They range from mental health and physical wellbeing to digital skills and safety. We deliver courses across England, both online and in the classroom.

Learn more about social prescribing and the SPƵվ offer at our social prescribing page.

Additional support

Learners with identified additional learning needs should request support on their enrolment form and/or speak to their tutor about the support they may need whilst studying.
