Paralympic champion opens pioneering complex needs and disability college

Britain’s most successful female Paralympian has helped to officially open a specialist college in Manchester, which provides services and support for students with learning disabilities, complex needs and autism. Dame Sarah Storey (pictured centre) joined students and staff from Bridge College in Openshaw, East Manchester last week [February 13] as they celebrated the completion of a 3-year project to create a learning hub for the development of social skills and independence, and an area dedicated to promoting horticulture in an urban setting. The Openshaw project was developed through a partnership between The Manchester College and care and education provider Together Trust.
