At PiP, supporting students to manage their health, wellbeing and happiness underpins everything we do.
Being healthy and having the tools to manage your own health brings lots of other benefits to our students such as improved mental wellbeing, increased happiness, reduced loneliness and increased opportunities to get to know the local community.
Approximately 40% of adults with a learning disability also have a mental health problem and learning disabilities are often linked with physical health problems such as being underweight/overweight, dementia, epilepsy and respiratory disease (NHS Digital 2019). Research shows that people with learning disabilities (and their families) often have limited social networks and can live quite isolated lives.
At PiP we know that social inclusion involves making meaningful connections and participating in fulfilling activities. In short, if its fun, you’ll keep attending. So our range of core and after-hours programmes concentrate on improving health and wellbeing whilst having fun.
