Taking Part - An Independent Service for people with Learning Disabilites

Description:

Taking Part support people through lots of different creative ways and offer lots of services. We aim to support, encourage and listen to young people so that they can develop the confidence to take a central part in their transition planning.

What we do:

  • The services we offer are Advocacy and Support, Advice and Information, Social Opportunities, and Easy Read Information for Children and Young People and their families. We can create easy read materials on request too.
  • We will signpost parents and carers to find accurate, up-to-date information to help them support their young person to achieve their hopes, wishes and dreams.
  • We offer support to children and young people to ensure that their voice is heard and that they can take part in decision making about their own future.
  • We can offer advice to young people and their families about personalisation, including personal budgets and support planning. We can also provide information about financial support, health, social care, and more.
  • We also have a project called Moving and Grooving. It is run by Taking Part as part of the ‘All In’ Short Breaks activities. We support Leisure Centre Staff to deliver a wide range of activities to children with additional needs.
