Now in its second 'term', Star Skills is our weekly drama session for adults with learning disabilities aimed at improving social skills and building confidence in day-to-day situations. Run in collaboration with All Stars Theatre Company, Star Skills is led by practitioner Becky Huggins, supported by All Stars' founders Jan and David Halifax and a team of volunteers. As well as having lots of fun, many Star Skills participants have made massive strides forward in self confidence.

Comments from those taking part have included:
'It has helped me to control bullying' John
'Makes me feel more independent' Caroline
'I'm learning how to keep safe' Carol
'I can practice showing emotions' Vicky
'It is helping me support others' Anthony

Star Skills continues until the end of March 2013 but we hope to be able to extend this project in the future.
