So, its Learning Disability week 2016, and we thought we’d tell you all about how we at Space Inclusive help in building new friendships and relationships – which is the theme of this year’s Learning Disability week!
At Space Inclusive, one of the great things about all of our activities is that they are not only positive in promoting personal independence but also in helping to build new friendships and relationships.
For people with learning disabilities it can often be hard to make friends with others, especially when at times it feels as if other don’t understand your point of view. Even if you make friends with someone, that relationship can sometimes be strained because it may be hard for the other individual to appreciate the other’s condition.
That’s where the activities we put in place are so great! Whether it is learning to clean around the house, cooking meals or even our Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme, our clients are learning about teamwork – and through that teamwork they’re making new friends.
We also have regular socials too, like visiting art galleries and going to the cinema. Again, this helps to encourage new friendships and relationships to develop.
We’re pleased that our clients can build new friendships here at Space Inclusive, and long may it continue. After all, life would be pretty boring without friends to share it with sometimes, wouldn’t it?
