After asking the young people how they would like the one to one room decorated, they settled on a bright orange for the walls. Thanks to a pot of funding we were able to afford two sofas, coffee tables, shelving, bean bags, a lamp, a rug, a chalk board, a blind, some toys, and paint & wallpaper to completely revamp our 1-2-1 room so it was comfier for anyone to use it.
During lockdown it had become our unofficial 'charity shop storage room', so when we got back to doing one on one, as well as group, sessions again, we knew we needed to tidy it up and get started. We had some doubts of the colours chosen at first, and a few bumps in the road as we were decorating, but by the end, we were very chuffed with how its turned out and so are our service users!!
