You, Me, Our Wee Community

Reducing social isolation, increasing access to opportunities

Working in partnership with Orchardville and NOW Group, this programme seeks to reduce social isolation of young people with learning disabilities.

You, Me, Our Wee Community is a 24-week programme of learning new skills and meeting others.

6 weeks Mind, Body, Soil- How to grow and look after plants
6 weeks Food to Fork- How to prepare and cook the food you have grown
6 weeks Resilience- Learning about emotional resilience and how to cultivate resilience
4 weeks DJ skills- Communicating and self-expression through music, podcasts and film

At the end of the programme, the members organise a showcase and celebration event to share what they have learned.

We have run two cohorts of this programme so far.
