Outward Mobility is a short trips project that offers breaks for adults with learning disabilities. Part of the aim of the project is to provide respite for the young people as well as their family and carers.
Upward Mobiliy strive to offer new opportunities, increase independence and new experiences during our trips.
Basecamp 2 builds on our popular model, offering children and young people an innovative new pathway to success. The project prepares children and young people for transitions to take part in new activities and gain valuable life skills.
We provided exciting, challenging themed weekends for disabled people aged 21-30 years, who have a range of complex needs.
Fabb-i do weekends are active and fun, while enabling carers and families to get what they have called a “real break”.
Our project enabled 5 Scottish adults who have OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta), to attend our Family Weekend Conference with their family carers and children if any.
The event was held in Manchester the weekend of 11th Sep 2015.
We provided grants directly to carers who care for an adult who have serious mental health problems and mental illness.
We provided a monthly social activity service for parents, partners and family carers of adults on the autism spectrum.
Our Pasda Social Group provided carers with the opportunity to meet other carers on trips out, enjoy meals together, and take part in a variety of leisure activities.
We provided grants directly to carers who care for someone living with dementia. The break or activity must help to decrease carer stress, increase carer wellbeing and help them sustain their caring role.
It is aimed that this is done without adverse effect on the person that they care for and mostly an alternative to traditional respite.
Over the last year we have been running a programme of short breaks (residential and day events) for carers, and people being cared for, from the Gypsy/Traveller community living in Perth & Kinross, Lothian and Argyll.
