Joe’s Story

Fishing 6

Joe attends a local special school. He has a degenerative life limiting disease and is wheelchair bound. He also has an able-bodied twin brother and gets deeply frustrated when he cannot join in activities with his peers.

The school has undergone a number of difficult trips with him in the past to other venues; his frustration at being unable to access activities has ruined many such outings for him.

In contrast, Joe loves coming to Ufton Adventure and has made a number of very successful visits. At Ufton Adventure he is able to join in almost everything developing independence and confidence.

Daisy’s new found confidence

Helping hands low ropes (2015 approved)Daisy was shy, lacking confidence and rarely participated in class or with peers. Her social confidence and independence have soared since her repeat visits to UA. She says she was scared and nervous before the night adventure but she did it and said: “Yeah it makes you feel more braver.”

Daisy thinks she has gained more independence

My mum says I’m confident now…because where as I used to not say much at home, now she says I can’t stop talking…I even do new things like swimming!

Madeleine’s Story

feeding-the-chickens

Madeleine was a very quiet child – softly spoken and tending to play alone. She often became upset at the noise and rough and tumble of games and found it difficult to understand how groups work. She did not volunteer answers in the classroom, and despite working hard, was below age related expectations across the curriculum.

Ufton provided the perfect environment for Madeleine to develop more confidence, to raise her self-esteem, to speak out and make friends.

Madeleine has been transformed from a tearful, shy young person to a child who is willing to take risks and join in.
