Y.O.U Has Some Exciting News!!
Y.O.U has been awarded a grant from The National Lottery Community Fund which will fund the Dream,Plan,Live programme for 6 months.
This programme will provide person-centred planning support to disabled people and families living with disability between the ages of 16-64 years old and help them, remove the barriers that disability often brings, assisting them to look to the future and access the support they need to live an ordinary life and the life they want to lead. Y.O.U's person-centred planning support will be designed and provided in a new and innovative way, providing a new dimension to person-centred planning support.
