Sailship Training and Learning for Life

Offer work skills training, vocational enterprise and social, therapeutic, life skills provisions for adults living with a learning disability or a mental health support need

How it can help

Sailship TLL is a day opportunity provider for adults with learning disabilities.

They train young people, with special educational needs/disabilities, towards employment, by offering ASDAN Employability qualifications at entry level 2/3 or level 1&2 utilising enterprise as subject matter to achieve criteria for the qualification.

Subjects taught to gain the qualification include Commercial Horticulture, Preserves Manufacture/Retail, Catering and Customer Care and Floristry.

They specialise in supporting people with a severe learning disability, requiring 1:1 support for learning or therapeutic activity.

The charity also offers support to people for improved mental health and well-being, recovery from illness, or injury, through therapeutic programmes.

They also offer an Accessible Pathway for any member of the local community or Community Group to utilise for a gentle walk which takes the visitor around the Sailship site. Following the walk visitors can access the cafe for a healthy snack and/or drink. The pathway is funded by Active Essex and is a great way to enjoy a walk or guided tour. The Accessible Pathway visit must be booked in advance by calling 07875 639 188.




This service is for those with learning disability, mental health support need or challenged by dementia, as well as those rehabilitating from illness/injury, wishing to regain confidence in work skills/life skills
