Ripple Project successfully completed: Creating a community space for learning disability charity Opening Doors

Updated: Apr 10



It's a wrap!


After three months of perseverant work, our recent coaching participants have finished their "Ripple Project". They created an amazing outdoor community space for user-led charity Opening Doors.


In weekly sessions, under the guidance of professional maintenance firm 247 Residential, the team transformed an unused overgrown space into a friendly, wheelchair accessible and visually appealing outdoor lounge area.


They worked through a range of challenges, not least the grim winter weather conditions, and delivered an excellent result to our pro bono client. Opening Doors' Operations Manager Louise Whitlam said: "Thank you so much for all your hard work, the finished product looks amazing! All visions have come together."


Our participants have increased their self-confidence, reduced their fear of failure and improved their well being throughout the process. One participant reflected, "It gave me the confidence to do things (...) instead of staying inside. I also learnt how to cope better in difficult situations and people."


Another one expressed, "Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and gained a lot of new skills and confidence on the way."
