People with learning disabilities have been excluded from many opportunities in the past and we want to offer placements with full support but also with a meaningful reward. The community credits will enable people to build a healthier lifestyle and eliminate isolation. We will be supporting elderly people in the community also by visiting and offering to do shopping. This scheme will build long lasting community connections along with building peoples self esteem and skills. Local businesses will also support the Community Credit Scheme by offering free sessions at more quieter times in the day/week and in return will receive publicity for supporting their local community. They may even gain more customers.

What we'll deliver:

  • Find communiuty placements for adults with learning disabilties
  • I will build long lasting community connections

Why it's a great idea:

This is an amazing project which will benefit the whole community whilst also supporting the most vulnerable in our community

Steps to get it done:

  • By building commuity connections
