Money available for learning disability and autism projects

 

West Sussex Learning Disabilities Partnership Board is inviting grant applications for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. 

The Board offers small sums of money to applicants offering new, innovative and creative initiatives.

Funding is available for one year only. Organisations can apply for either a learning disability grant and/or an autistic spectrum disorder grant. No more than two applications will be allowed per organisation.

Among projects supported last year was Steps 2 Ltd initiative ‘Come Dine with Us’.

The service provided opportunities for adults with learning disabilities to attend an evening cooking skills session where they learnt how to cook new recipes and share an evening meal with their friends.

The main aims of the project were skills development and prevention of social isolation.

Graham Tyler, co-Chairman of the Learning Disabilities Partnership Board, said: “This is a chance for some truly innovative schemes or new approaches towards adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.

“We have seen some truly outstanding applications in previous years that have helped to enhance lives and we hope this tradition will be carried on during this year’s funding round.”
