Today, we want to say a huge #ThanksToYou to National Lottery players, for funding two of our amazing projects.
With National Lottery funding we are able to run regular sessions for our adult group, No Limits, which provides over 18s with learning disabilities in Mid Sussex with a range of activities members can enjoy with their friends in a supportive environment. Sessions run in the evenings and over the weekend. Activities include discos, visits to local pubs and the theatre, greyhound racing and meals out. The activities are designed to be fun whilst at the same time help the members with their social and life skills. Our aim is to help build confidence and self esteem and give young adults opportunities to become more independent and engage with the local community.
National Lottery players also fund our Family Support project which gives parents, carers and siblings the opportunity to join in with Kangaroos activities. We’ve recently launched support groups for parent carers and siblings independent of their Kangaroo member. Our aim is to extend our support to the whole family, and enable people to talk about their shared experiences and network with each other.
