Our experienced practitioners have the knowledge and skills to maximise the independence and social confidence of every individual.
Support can be provided to access social and leisure activities or liaise with other agencies in relation to training, employment and social welfare support. Outreach support can, for example, include the development of budgeting and independent living skills.
For each person, a personalised support plan will be developed in partnership with their support team. This is reviewed regularly to ensure outcomes are progressed and achieved. Although there is a wide and varied range of potential positive outcomes, through outreach support, the underlying focus is on enabling individuals to achieve goals which are meaningful to them.
Social Independence Groups
An additional type of outreach support we offer is social independence groups. The aim of these groups is to provide an opportunity for individuals to meet and participate in social activities. Our practitioners enable and encourage individuals to develop friendships, have new experiences and develop independence and confidence.
Individuals attending the group choose and are consulted on the range of activities available. Social evenings have included games nights, art therapy sessions and outings to the ten pin bowling and cinema.
We have a group running on a weekly basis in Forth Valley which is open to adults over the age of 18 with autism. Individuals are welcome to bring their support worker with them to the group if they wish.
