Independence Project Ltd

We offer a full personalised programme of activities to engage you within a fun safe environment whilst achieving goals. We will have regular meetings with everyone who will ultimately decide what they want to do.

We are based in the city centre of Chelmsford, Essex. This is the home of Independence Project and can access many centre based activities such as;

employability skills / enterprise skills / woodwork skills / animal care / arts & crafts / filming and editing / food preparation & cooking skills / basic household tasks / gardening / computer skills / drama workshops / sporting activities.

We are not just another day centre for adults! We place strong emphasis on learning and socialising outside of the centre. We feel that it is important to get out in the community and access many services that are open to us. Group activities on offer will be as follows;

museum trips / dog walking / gym classes / trips to the beach / bowling / trampolining / horse riding / farm trips / outdoor activity centres / shopping / travel training / boat trips / trips to the zoo / woodland walks / swimming / cycling / fishing / karaoke / meals out.

We have staff on hand to help you access all of these activities and more in a safe and accessible way. We can offer you accredited ASDAN qualifications that are based around employability skills and life skills giving you a sense of achievement whilst having fun with peers!

Also, we provide training for NEET 16-18 year olds in partnership with Chelmsford College.
