Spiritual and Personal Development for people with special needs
Children, Teens, Young Adults and Adults
Each SPRED group is respectful of the persons actual age.
Each group welcomes six 'Friends' and eight volunteers. Two volunteers take on leadership roles and six have a special 'Friend' to accompany within the group.
Volunteers must all have disclosure checks and will be trained in the SPRED method. A regular commitment to the group is essential.
On-going training and supervision is provided.
SPRED groups meet on a regular evening:- fortnightly for 'Friends' and weekly for volunteers in school term time.
We are open to all who wish to take part. We have SPRED celebrations throughout the year to which family, carers and support workers are invited.
It is possible to come and observe a session if you are interested to learn more with a view to taking part in SPRED.
We receive referrals from individuals, families, care agencies, special schools and parishes.
