What an amazing year 2013 was for Options In Life!
Our inspirational group of young adults has experienced a great range of physically and mentally challenging opportunities – from becoming regulars at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena and go-karting at Noah’s Ark, kayaking and cycling at Lochore Meadows, braving the Seafari Expedition at North Berwick, handling tarantulas, snakes and a baby meerkat… the list goes on! But, most importantly, they have made friends – they now have a social network of people facing similar difficulties to themselves and are helping each other with these.
Having been their weekly support worker since the start of the Summer Program, I’m sad to be moving on to a new job – I’m really going to miss them all and their zest for life! They’re such a fantastic group of people. And anyone would benefit from being in their company every week.
