Social Outreach is an accredited service that addresses gaps within community services & commercials sector to engage & develop (mainly) young adults with various disabilities. We use sports & outdoor pursuits to enable people to participate in various activities. Social Outreach provides for families, adults & children with learning & physical disabilities, as well as young people not in education, employment or training.
It became clear that many young people & adults with learning disabilities stand in danger of being excluded from the labour market, training & society at large. Employment opportunities are limited. Quite often, traditional day services do not meet their aspirations or their complex needs. We set out to change this.
We allow people to progress at their own pace & over a period of time, some progress into employments
People with significant disabilities are offered long term work activity & training, to enable them to develop their maximum potential & make an equal contribution to the world of work, whilst enjoying the benefits of increased self-confidence & self-esteem that it brings.
The emphasis is on making a contribution in a real live working environment to enhance the quality of lives for all that take part.
