A Proper Day Out

Our blogs sometimes serve as an excellent tourist guide and today’s article is no exception. Taking advantage of the glorious spring weather, we headed up to Pontarfynach or Devil’s Bridge in the company of James and support worker Aled. Unhurried is a great way to describe the atmosphere we found when we parked up at […]

What is GDPR?

A really important new piece of legislation comes into force later on this month. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) replaces the old Data Protection Act 1998. It aims to¬†protect EU citizens from organisations using their data irresponsibly and puts them in charge of what information is shared and how it’s shared. So what has changed […]

A Helping Hand

For some ILS staff, the prospect of studying can be a daunting one, particularly if it’s been a long time since last studying. Which is why having the right training partner is so important. For many years now that helping hand comes from PRP Training from Pembroke Dock. For support worker Ollie, this week saw […]

Bursting with Pride

It’s not an exaggeration to say everyone in the room was bursting with pride. This is what we found this week when JJ and Adrian came to our new head office in Carmarthen to hang their amazing art works in our upstairs meeting room. The first job when the boys arrived was to sign their […]

A Few Firsts

Upstairs saw a few firsts this week; our first sing-song with the piano and our first classroom training session. The addition of blinds to the […]

Good for the Constitution

Anyone on the autistic spectrum will know that a change of routine can sometimes be a real challenge. Naturally, we understand this and go to great efforts to make sure that when end of term holidays come around, Rhodri has lots of fun activities lined up. One such activity during the Easter break, was a […]

Creative Juices

Art is often about communication, so it’s not surprising to see our staff using their skills and experience to help our individuals express themselves and have fun. This week Support Worker Alex’s passion for creativity was exploited to the full as he took JJ and Adrian on a journey of discovery and learning which all […]

It’s Spring

After what has seemed like an endless winter, spring is officially here. The clocks are going forward, the temperature is rising and our gardens are beginning to come alive again. At our services, this means time to dust off the gardening tools. Many of our individuals have green fingers, so it doesn’t take much persuasion […]

Painting Pottery

The first thing you notice when you park up at Gwilli Pottery are the stunnings views. We were really lucky to have chosen a sunny day to visit this charming location and the boys were happy to take in the vista for a few minutes and have their photos taken. A short walk up some […]

Birthday Bowls

Everyone likes to celebrate their birthdays in different ways. While some may like a quiet day without fuss, others like to mark the occasion by throwing a party or going out with friends and family. For Tom’s birthday he fancied a trip to the bowling alley, so at 11am staff and service users from all […]
