On Wednesday (12th December), a new Life Skills room at Nansa’s Adult Centre on Bowthorpe Road was opened by a team from the financial planning firm Loveday & Partners after they volunteered their time to transform the room.

Nansa has worked for over 60 years to improve the lives of people in Norfolk with physical, sensory and learning disabilities. Nansa is a local independent charity and believes that all people with disabilities are entitled to full inclusion in society. Nansa aims to empower people in Norfolk with disabilities to achieve their life aspirations.

The team, led by Loveday & Partners Director Deborah Bourassa, spent an afternoon a week at the Adult Centre working tirelessly on the project since early October. As a result, they have transformed the room which will now be used as part of Nansa’s Milestones project.

Milestones is a Nansa Transition Service for young people aged 18-25 years old who are preparing for adulthood. The Milestones programme was developed by Nansa in consultation with young people, parents and families supported by NANSA across other services.

Deborah Bourassa, Loveday and Partners Director, said “It was a privilege for our team to work with the Nansa team on this exciting project. We felt uplifted meeting the staff and members and by the positive energy and optimistic sense of purpose that pervaded the centre and in all you do. Thank you for this first opportunity to help, we hope it’s not the last!”

Tom Garrod, Chief Executive of Nansa, said “We are very grateful to Deborah, Lisa, Kai, Jessica, Sadie, Corrina and Nicky for giving up their time to come at do this for us. I am in awe of their passion and commitment to the charity and cannot thank them enough. This means that we are now able to offer people with disabilities a safe environment to develop their life skills as part of our Milestones project.”
