The We are incredABLE project is an exciting new programme being launched in September 2017. This unique 5-year project funded by Big Lottery will offer “whole day” opportunities for young people aged 18 – 25 years with a learning disability and/or autism who live in the Southern Health and Social Care Trust Area.
The primary focus of the We are incredABLE project is to better prepare young people with a learning disability and/or autism to transition into adulthood, progress toward independent living and employment and become active citizens in their communities. To do this we will provide work focused experience, daily living skills and social activities in a community based setting, helping young people to prepare at this key transition stage.
It is envisaged that programme participants will benefit from improved independence greater confidence and motivation, more choice and opportunity as well as enhanced relationships within their family, peer and community support networks.
