Aspire Community Benefit Society supports people with learning disabilities to have better lives through the provision of high-quality, person-centred, care and support services.
Our purpose is to enhance the quality of the lives of the people we support by empowering them to be as independent as possible. Citizenship is at the heart of our organisation.
We support people to make the most of their strengths and to take an active part in the communities in which they live. We want the people we support to lead fulfilling lives and to ensure they are safeguarded from avoidable harm.
The winning design will be announced at Picnic in Your Garden during Leeds Learning Disability Week. Later we’ll have the design printed onto T-shirts that will be available to buy and all money raised will be donated to charity.
Our second event for Leeds Learning Disability Week is The Big Walk. Usually we hold a sponsored supported walk around Swinsty Reservoir. However, given the lockdown, we decided to do things differently this year. Instead, we’re asking you to walk around your garden, home or locality and let us know how many steps you did.
If you prefer other types of exercise, that’s fine too. Just let us know what you did and for how long, and we’ll work out the steps.
We have always enjoyed taking a walk Down Memory Lane during Leeds Learning Disability Week at the fabulous Armley Mills. This year, of course, things need to be done differently so the team are working on a programme of online activities for you to enjoy.
We’ll bring you more details soon but, in the meantime, why not make a note of this event in your diary?
We love a good picnic at Aspire and don’t want to miss out on the annual Leeds Learning Disability picnic. So, this year we’re asking you to have a Picnic in Your Garden. The details are on the flyer below:
We’ll reveal the winner of the Aspire X Factor Competition on the day. Have you voted for your favourite(s) yet?
We’d love to see your photographs from your picnic and to share them on our Facebook page. Fancy dress is welcome but entirely optional.
