Lifeworks Summer Holiday Bubbles

We are delighted to bring to you Lifeworks Summer Holiday Bubbles. Following a great deal of careful planning to ensure we keep your young person safe we are excited to be able to offer you a rich and interesting programme of activities this summer.

Taking place outside on the stunning Lupton House Estate in Brixham between Tuesday 28 July and Friday 28 August from 10am-4pm. We are planning lots of fantastic activities to help participants adjust to socialising in the ‘new normal’ and to do what they have always done at Lifeworks Holiday Projects – have fun, try new things, be active and be mindful.

We are concentrating on activities that promote staying safe and maintaining a social distance using Movement with Richard Chappell, Music with Moor to Sea and Mindfulness with the Mindful Choice to find new ways to connect.  There will be lots of physical exercise with Lift-the-lid and Sophie Carr with us in person; yoga, hula hoop and circuits plus new for this holiday; Forest School in the Orchard at Lupton with South West Family Values.

How will the Holiday Bubbles work?

To keep everyone as safe as possible, this summer we have created ‘Holiday Bubbles. There will be a total of 7 young people + 1 young volunteer in each bubble. Each day there will be space for one young person needing 1:1 staff support and space for 6 young people who require 1:3 staff support.

This year you will only be able to book your young person in for 4 days in total.  Your 4 days can be booked during Weeks 1 and 2 OR during Weeks 3 and 4. For example you cannot book 2 days in Week 1 and then have 2 days in Week 4. This is to ensure there is no potential infection crossover between young people and staff.  Groups A and C will be led by Tim Chapman on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Groups B and D will be led by Matt Jefferies on Thursdays and Fridays. The same rule applies to Bubbles A and B; C and D.  You cannot crossover from Bubble A to Bubble B nor Bubble C to Bubble D. So once you choose a bubble you have to stick with it throughout. Regretfully we cannot take bookings for just one day. If you find this confusing please get in touch with us to have a chat! Email [email protected]

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
