An important aspect of GR6 is getting you prepared for independent life and living. A big part of that is being able to look after yourself and where you live. What do you think you're already capable of doing in regards to looking after yourself and your living environment?
Where would you like some help/guidance?
Engaging with the local community is a fundamental part of being at GR6. The events we hold are so that the community can come to us and see and enjoy the things we create. But some parts of the community are unable to come to us; they may be elderly or infirm, they could be homeless, or sick, or disabled. We want all GR6 students to volunteer some time and energy to help these people either directly, or through charity work (such as volunteering at a charity shop etc). Do you have any ideas about how you would volunteer some of your time and energy?
Helping out at care home for the elderly
Helping young people
Helping the homeless
Helping special needs or disabled people
Working in a charity shop
Supporting a charity with fundraising work
Helping at a food bank
Visiting patients in hospital
