Everything you need to know

Each weekly session lasts for two hour and covers a range of topics related to daily body hygiene, skin care, hair care, nail care, foot care, dental care, bathroom hygiene, presentation, verbal and non-verbal communication, and initiating conversation.

The program is delivered in small groups of no more than 10 participants, allowing for individualised attention and guidance. Participants are also welcome to bring a support person at no extra cost.

At the beginning of the program, each participant receives an A4 book with resources to make day-to-day self-care easier. They also receive personal care product samples used in guided self-care mentoring activities, which can be taken home for continued use.

Each weekly session is theme-based and incorporates African drumming therapy and creative mindfulness activities. African drumming is kept to a low and calming volume to meet differing sensory needs and is a combination of discussion and drumming. Creative activities are sensory-friendly and aimed at creating calm and mindfulness. This is a chance for connection in a calming social setting.

Throughout the program, feedback and discussion are welcome to help adjust each session to better meet the needs of the participants.
