MK Snap, Thrive for Month of Service

Our AFL Hyperscale volunteers were hard at work helping to spruce up the MK Snap (Milton Keynes Special Needs Advancement Project) garden in preparation for winter, including a sort out of the plants and some expert paving!

MK Snap offers professional support to learners with a range of learning difficulties and challenges. Their learners are from Milton Keynes and the surrounding local authorities and include adults recovering from stroke or head injury, those with visual or mobility impairment, and those with learning disabilities, such as those on the autistic spectrum.

The type and extent of difficulties experienced by MK Snap learners varies greatly and this list offers a few examples but is by no means exhaustive:

  • Behavioural/social – relating to others
  • Communication, expressing themselves or understanding and processing what others say
  • Reading and writing (e.g. dyslexia), number work or understanding information
  • Concentrating (e.g. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), appropriate behaviour

A great day was had by all and the garden area is now ready for winter. We look forward to going back to visit MK Snap again.
