Activities include:

• Film afternoons

• Swimming

• Sports

• Money skills

• Life skills workshop

• Computer skills

• Basic cooking lessons

• Healthy eating

Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Attainable.  You have made this year so special for my brothers.  I am truly grateful.  For Scott especially, he loves his Monday workday in the factory and it has brought new friends and real meaning to his life.

If I didn’t work I would get bored staying at home. Attainable gives me a place to go. If I stay home I will eat and get fat.
