Key priority area: Social isolation and loneliness
Funding awarded: £1965
Archway supports almost 200 people with learning disabilities and their families. Covid 19 has had a devastating impact on those with learning disabilities, and those caring for them, and they will continue to face considerable hardship and disadvantage going forward. We want the funding so we can offer a monthly face to face evening social club for adults with learning disabilities living at home with parents and carers. Our social club will enable them to come together, start re-integrating into community life while enjoying activities like bingo, arts and crafts, games and discos that have a positive effect on their mental health and well-being.
