St Piers College officially launch Life Skills Centre

We are pleased to announce the official opening of the Griffith Therapy and Life Skills Centre for students with autism. The centre will help students living with extreme complex needs to maximise their potential.

This building will supply students with tailored classrooms and facilities, the space to learn important skills to help them live independently after college.

Special guests included the Education Funding Agency, The DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, The Albert Hunt Trust, The Sobell Foundation, The David and Claudia Harding Foundation and Chartham Park Golf Club who have supported the project since the very beginning, being part of cutting the ribbon.

Carol Long, Chief Executive at Young Epilepsy, said:

This new addition to the Young Epilepsy campus will see the students gain vocational qualifications, practical work experience and life skills which will boost their chances of finding work and living independently after Young Epilepsy.

We are so grateful to our supporters and donors that made the Griffith Therapy and Life Skills Centre possible. They are truly helping to create better futures for these young lives.

So a massive thank you to all the donors and supporters who came down and visited the new Griffith Therapy Centre. We look forward to seeing the difference this Centre will make to the students in its first year.
