BASE

“I love the BASE. I get to be myself and have lots of fun!” Hayley, Base Member, Ballymoney

CAN operates 3 x Base Projects for people with learning disabilities in Ballymoney, Ballymena and Coleraine areas. The Base’s were developed in partnership with Northern Health & Social Care Trust’s Day Opportunities Programme.

The Base provides opportunities to meet and develop friendships and provides support and connections to participate in community-based leisure activities – such as:

Shopping Trips;
10-pin bowling;
Cycling Outings;
Walking Groups;
Green Gyms;
Cinema Outings;
Computer Access and Training;
Arts and Crafts, etc.

The Base projects give people independence and choice as the individuals themselves choose activities and engage in fund-raising activities to support these. Highlights in the past year include Scottish Country Dance Workshops, Fixers UK projects, Active Communities sessions through SportsNI, and workshops addressing mental health awareness.
