Doubling our services in 2018 to respond to growing local need
PiP provides life-skills and support for around 60 people in Westminster.
But our premises are no longer suitable for the numbers of people who want to come to PiP – or the type of training we want to offer.
Many of our students – and our prospective students – also have mobility challenges and we can’t offer lift or full wheelchair access.
PiP offers something few others can match: the chance to learn new skills and embrace new opportunities within an organisation that is wholly integrated with the local community.
Thanks to the success of our service, we now need to grow to help more people from our oversubscribed waiting list.
We are searching for the perfect site for a new Hub within Westminster. It’s bigger, has much better access and will help us maintain the special sense of belonging that makes PiP unique.
Our Beanstalk appeal seeks to raise £1 million to allow us to do just that.
More space means more (and better) training, leading to more independence for students.
- £20 – An employment skills session for another adult with learning disabilities
- £40 – Equipment for our kitchen to teach vocational cooking skills
- £75 – An employment skills session for a full classroom
As well as fundraising, the hunt is underway for PiP’s new premises in Westminster.
