I told you all late last year that a really interesting project was starting soon in Walsall Wood for the families and carers of adults with learning disabilities and who have a weekday requirement for daycare for their loved one – well, the centre is now open and in full swing.
As many readers will be aware, with recent austerity and continued strain on local authority provision, daycare throughout the country is becoming severely limited and oversubscribed, with many local authorities ending provision completely.
This places a huge load upon already stressed carers who then often get little rest from what is a very demanding responsibility.
The Motivation Hub in Walsall Wood provides daycare opportunities for LD people in the area that is cost effective and high quality.
This is a really good opportunity for people with special needs to socialise, be supported and undertake meaningful activity in a protected, caring environment.
Suzanne Sant got in touch to tell me all about it. She said:
