Stand Out Studio photographer Carl Hewlett attended the National Star 2018 fireworks display last night at the college in Ullenwood near Cheltenham.

This staff, student and family event raised an incredible £1,300 for National Star and young people with complex disabilities.

National Star enables young people with disabilities to realise their potential through education and personalised learning opportunities, and by providing other transition and accommodation services.

The college itself offers programmes that are tailored to meet individual aspirations and abilities, with a strong emphasis on creative and performing arts, sports, communication skills and life skills. Learner progress is monitored through the setting of individual goals and targets, and a strong multi-disciplinary team, including speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and behaviour specialists, ensure a holistic and person-centred approach is taken.

These programmes are offered at both the national centre in Ullenwood, Gloucestershire, as well as at a local level, where National Star is working with partner organisations.
