Alan is an integral part of Project 49 life and is very much part of the ethos of Southend Care. He has two work placements; one voluntary at MENCAP and one paid at Shoebury Leisure Centre, which is supported by our staff team.
Alan attends Project 49 two days a week. He takes part in both community and physical activities after discovering the increased flexibility and mental wellbeing yoga can bring. In addition, working in a life skills session helps with his dietary needs. Recently, he dedicated his own time to assist with an evening film shoot, as part of the Music on Sea project we’re working on.
When volunteers were needed to help on the Judgemental Film project, screened on the Big Screen at the Forum last year, he was again keen to take part.
