Livability’s new annual review and report for 2016-2017

Livability’s Annual Review and Annual Report for 2016-2017 are now published. Featuring the people we support, our donors, staff and volunteers, this year’s Annual Review highlights a number of stories about why community connections really do matter.

In a society where more and more people are facing isolation, building strong relationships and meaningful community is vital. Together and with the people we support, the charity is committed to enabling people to participate, celebrating their gifts and helping people live barrier free lives.

The reports can be downloaded from the Annual Review and Reports page of our web site.

Some stories featured this year include

Connecting people through inclusive church

Livability supported an accessible and inclusive communion service for over 6,500 people at the faith and arts festival Greenbelt in the summer. The service included singing using Makaton signs, sensory prayers and a Bible Story in symbol flash cards. The sermon came from 14 year-old Becky Tyler, who used a speech generating device called a Tobii Dynavox, to share a powerful message about her faith and life experience.

Connecting people with employment and training

Equipping disabled young people with employment and life skills is a key strength at Livability Nash College – which was praised by Ofsted this year. Ofsted highlighted the college’s ‘sharp focus on employ-ability and community support’, adding that the ‘standard of students’ work on work experience and in work-related learning is particularly good’.

Connecting people through creativity

Vincent takes part in the ‘Art By The Sea’ class at Livability Ashley Place – a care home in Bognor Regis. The community-run class has helped him develop new skills, express his artistry and enjoy new friendships.
