• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

What’s On

There’s lots going on at My Life for people of all ages and abilities.

We organise trips and social activities for our members, including theme park visits, fun days, BBQs, pantomimes, live shows and much more. If you have a disability and need support, you will need to bring your PA or carer, as we don’t provide direct support and personal care on our trips. Wherever possible, we try to make sure that the person who is supporting you doesn’t have to pay, or pays a reduced rate.

  • Our Opportunities Programme lists our timetable of classes & activities.
  • Our School Holiday Activities are just £15 per child per day for members, or £25 per child for non-members. They are a great way to get kids out in the fresh air and meet new friends.
  • We also run an inclusive Club Night for adults aged 18+ which is held every first Tuesday of the month.
  • All of our events are visible on the Events Calendar.

We welcome suggestions from our members for new events, trips and experiences.

Upcoming Events

Opportunities Programme

Our philosophy at My Life is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age and ability through an innovative approach to learning and discovery, in a beautiful country location with indoor and outdoor opportunities all year round.

Children, young people and adults are offered regular workshops to achieve and develop confidence through hands on learning, either in a group setting or on an individual basis. The programme is based on a wide range of opportunities, including the natural environment, the recognition of plants, caring for animals and helping to preserve our planet. Personal skills are considered highly valuable, such as team work, problem solving and self development. Our mission is to not hurry people into taking exams and certificates, but to take our time so individuals can be mindful and genuinely learn and discover at their own pace.

Although the programme offers something for everyone, we can arrange for additional sessions or one to one sessions in carriage driving, equine studies, horticulture, postural care and other aspects of learning, both indoors and outdoors. We are learning what appeals to individuals and groups of people and have the flexibility to adapt our programme as we evolve, develop, but more importantly get to know individuals who would like to spend some time with us.
