Supporting Extraordinary People

Recreation Programme Information

20130712_124006 

At the moment, our target support group is adults aged 18 – 30 years, as this allows the group members to form friendships and bonds with people of a similar age and similar interests.

We welcome young adults with learning and physical disabilities, keen to be active and get involved in lots of fun activities.  Members of our groups at the moment are on the autism spectrum, have general learning difficulties, mobility issues such as Myotonic Dystrophy, Williams Syndrome, Down Syndrome and other conditions.  Everyone in the groups has difficulty with communication, social interaction, understanding, in some way and coping with life skills in general.

photo 3We have our own minibus and the groups’ central meeting point is at the railway station, Cupar, but we also pick up and drop off in Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Leven. This is dependent on the needs of those attending at the moment and therefore, if the groups change, we will consider new locations that are more suitable.

We must also explain that it is the responsibility of the individual (or a parent/guardian) to ensure they get to the arranged meeting point safely.  Our staff will send a text or inform an agreed person (usually a parent) to let them know what time the group expects to be back, if the individual wishes, but we cannot ask our staff to take responsibility for each person going home (or vice versa) after this point.  So please ensure they know how to reach the meeting point and get home again beforehand.

All group members (service-users, staff, volunteers) are asked to wear an Options In Life T-shirt and carry a bag (a baseball cap is an additional option) when out with the group.  With such a big group and the busy environments we often visit, this is important for our staff to keep the group together and easily identify each other.   These items are issued either before or on your first trip.

If you or someone you know would benefit from joining our Recreation Programme, or you would like more information, please CONTACT US.

Thanks!
