Activity Sessions for Adults with Disabilities
A story by Cambo Heritage Trust
We provided a core activity programme of two art sessions per week a 42 weeks (84 sessions) and shorter programmes of woodland activity (12 sessions overall) for those with less mobility problems.
Carers could join the sessions with their cared for adult or take time for themselves. In addition to this we piloted two activity days for young carers providing summer outdoor activities for the young carers on their own and also a day to enjoy with their families. This included a campfire, crafting activities and woodland and beach walk.
Turning Point Scotland Dumfries & Galloway Short Breaks Service
A story by Turning Point Scotland
We provided group activities for 1.5 hours each Thursday evening for up to 20 children with learning disabilities, autism and other related long term conditions, whilst their parents had a break from their caring role.
The activities, included cooking (taught by an experienced chef over a 4 week period), painting, games, outdoor pursuits, and entertainment was also provided.
We also had a short term respite care service at Kinvara, a home in Stranraer which provided valued respite care for children and adults supported by Turning Point Scotland. There was overnight respite each month for children at Kinvara, plus 1 day activity following the sleepover. The service concluded with an activity weekend to Kielder in January 2017.
