This is an ongoing social engagement project for the service users at Ashford's Kent County Council, Community Service.
Due to Government guidelines on self isolating, Lorrain is now in the process of providing 'step by step' videos for use in the home.
The aim is to broaden the inclusion of service users in the community. The projects focus on celebrating events that are important to Ashford's local inhabitants.
For the Chinese New Year, the sign of the rat, the service users were encouraged to experience a tactile sensation through rolling, wrapping and moulding the icing to make sugar mice/rats.
To feel a part of the annual Chinese Lantern Festival, service users were supported to fold, cut and overlap coloured paper to increase their coordination and hand dexterity.
