Family Transitions and Carer Recreation
A story by C.O.J.A.C.
We provided young adults with additional support needs with a Monday evening group session at our centre in Castlemilk. Transport was included from and to home.
Parents/carers of these young adults were provided with one evening a week break from caring, and monthly parent/carer support group.
Roxburgh Learning Disabilities Befriending Project
A story by Interest Link Borders
We delivered 1:1 and group befriending for 22 children and young people with learning disabilities aged 8-20 years and their carers living in the Scottish Borders.
Members formed friendships with peer-age volunteers and 38 carers had short breaks knowing their children were enjoying themselves.
Peer Mentor Support Project
A story by Fairway Fife
Each week, young people with learning disabilities participated in activities that they have chosen, and they were supported throughout the activity by our peer mentor volunteers and staff.
Thus allowing their families to make the most of the respite opportunity this has provided.
