The branch committee recognized a deficit in the provision of services for our adult members and undertook a survey of all our adult members and their parents. The results clearly identified a number of areas of interest for our members. The most prominent need was that of a “Buddy System” as well as providing opportunities for social outings. The Buddy system is currently under review. The branch has organised a number of activities over the coming months. The Branch has also set up a committee whose task is to cater for the needs of our adult members.
Activities and Outings
There are regular adult only events throughout the year. These activities will range from bowling and pizza events through to a parent-free weekend away in Galway! Forthcoming events will be posted on the website and on facebook so watch this space!
We also offer a range of different subsidised services suitable for our adult members. We have a subsidised speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and occupational therapy services as well as the social events. If you would like to find out more about any of these services for adult, just give us a ring at 021 43 00 444 as we would be like to help.
