Since 2019, we stopped offering our camps and started our Blossom Personal Empowerment Programme®, which offers skills based training designed to prepare young people with an intellectual disability (ID) for life as an adult! Here you can see Orla and Stephen learning how to take the bus independently during one of Blossom Explore sessions.
