Carers & Sharers meeting
The recent meeting for Carers & Sharers was all about 'Making Activities Matter'. The group had a demonstration from Rachael Love who is a Trainer at the Trust. Rachael put a particular emphasis on the use of materials for people with sensory impairments.
Parents were later encouraged to make a display using available resources. These were judged by a service user who found their efforts highly amusing!
The Carers & Sharers group is a support group for parents at the Trust. The group offers friendship, opportunities to socialise and meet other people in a similar position.
The next meeting will be Friday 18th May 2018 2 - 4pm at The Lodge, Upper Stowfield, GL17 9PD - all parents, carers, supporters and advocates of adults with a learning disability who use any Orchard Trust service will be most welcome.
