PLUS (Forth Valley) Ltd

(Stirlingshire)

Our project will offer increased opportunity and quality of service to children with disabilities and their families across the wider Forth Valley. We will be able to invest in bespoke resources to more effectively meet the needs of children and adults with complex needs. We will be recruit additional volunteers to support our services.

Our goals:

  • Disabled children and young people will have increased opportunities to take part in activities which are fun, engaging and meets their needs. Activities offered will be enriched through the purchase of high quality games, equipment and resources.
  • Parents and Carers who have a child with a disability will have access to regular short breaks when their child participates in events designed by the Project Manager. This will increase their capacity in their caring roles.
  • Our capacity to meet the outcomes for individuals teenagers and adults will be improved through an investment in equipment, resources and the general environment. This will result in higher quality engagement with families and young people.

How we will achieve our goals

By having the community award, our Project Managers post will become more sustainable for the organisation, ensuring our services can continue to grow and develop organically. The investment in resources, which we do not currently have a budget for, will increase the quality of engagement we are able to facilitate with the young people.

Where the money will go

We support 250 children and young people with disabilities from birth to age 35. Our focus is for children to spend increased time with friends and peers, whilst parents and carers can relax, knowing and trusting that their child is safe and having fun. Children are able to increase their confidence and independence whilst carers ‘recharge’.
