Staff and service users from Radis Community Care’s supported living services, got creative recently as part of Mencap’s Learning Disability Week.
Supported living services enable people with a learning or physical disability, autism or mental health conditions to lead independent lives in their own homes and as part of the local community.
Radis has several supported living schemes across the country where staff and service users celebrated the national awareness week’s theme of art and creativity by making masks.
Jayne Watkins, Head of Supported Living Services for Radis said: “Getting creative is a fantastic way for people of all abilities to express themselves and stay positive whilst some other activities remain restricted. It was fantastic to see the effort everyone put into their masks – the hope is that service users from the different schemes will be able to come together later in the year and wear their masks for a masquerade ball.”
Organised by charity Mencap, Learning Disability Week took place from 14 – 20 June with the theme of art and creativity in recognition of the fact that getting creative has been an important way for people with learning disabilities and their families to stay connected and positive over the challenges of the last year.
