Maggie and Stacey volunteer with CACT at the Eden Project
The trip was organised by CACT to reward the young adults suffering with psychosis after they spent 2 weeks gaining a City and Guilds level 1 and 2 in Social IT and Employability.
The Eden project involved sight seeing and team building activities such as making pizza and building a do-it-yourself tent which enabled them to improve their social skills.
The trip challenged the young adults but by the end, it was clear they all enjoyed themselves and had grown in confidence.
Maggie and Stacey did a fantastic job interacting with the young adults and helping them to develop their team working skills. Due to the success of the trip, we have been offered another two places to attend the final Eden Project trip taking place on Tuesday 15th April until Thursday 17th April.
“I would highly recommend this trip if you get the chance. It shows you an insight on how others live day to day who suffer from a mental illness, and the simple things in life we take for granted”- Stacey Wing, Periodics and Window Cleaning Administrator
