Live Your Life Activities for Cared-for People/Respite Support for Carers
A story by Community Central Hall
Community Central Hall delivered a multi-faceted activity programme for isolated Cared-for People with disabilities/Additional Support Needs during which time their Carer(s) received much-needed respite.
We also aimed to help both groups re-integrate back into the community to tackle isolation, regain their independence, and improve their health/well-being.
Barnardos Thrive Young Carer’s Group
A story by Barnardos Nurture Service Inverclyde Thrive Services
We provided two social groups for Young Carers (8-13 yrs & 13-16 yrs) living in Inverclyde. The groups provided Young Carer’s with regular respite time away from their caring responsibilities, opportunities to take part in various activities, and to develop peer relationships with other Young Carers.
