Moves for Man­ton at­ten­ders

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING reg­u­lar dis­cus­sions over the past two years with the peo­ple who have been at­tend­ing the Man­ton cen­tre in Caernar­fon along with their fam­i­lies, those peo­ple are now at­tend­ing ser­vices at other lo­ca­tions in the lo­cal area.

Staff from the Coun­cil’s Learn­ing Dis­abil­ity Ser­vice have been en­gag­ing with adults who re­ceive a ser­vices and sup­port to dis­cuss their aims and wishes. This has en­sured that the Coun­cil can de­liver a per­son­alised, in­di­vid­ual care pack­age with op­por­tu­ni­ties to learn, and de­velop as in­de­pen­dent mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

Aled Davies, Head of Gwynedd Coun­cil’s Adults, Health and Well­be­ing De­part­ment said: “We ap­pre­ci­ate that any change can be dif­fi­cult, and that is why the Learn­ing Dis­abil­ity Ser­vice staff have worked closely with those in­di­vid­u­als who have at­tended the Man­ton cen­tre, along with their fam­i­lies.

“We are con­fi­dent the new and ex­cit­ing ar­range­ments fully meet their needs and as­pi­ra­tions. Ev­ery one of those in­di­vid­u­als who has been at­tend­ing Man­ton will con­tinue to re­ceive sup­port from the Coun­cil’s Learn­ing Dis­abil­ity Ser­vice.”

Some will at­tend the Glyn­l­li­fon site to de­velop wood­work­ing skills: oth­ers will trans­fer to re­ceive a ser­vice at Men­ter Fach­wen and through the Seren or­gan­i­sa­tion. Other in­di­vid­u­als will also be at­tend­ing a new com­mu­nity ser­vice at the Ar­fon Leisure Cen­tre in Caernar­fon. This new Com­mu­nity Hub will of­fer op­por­tu­ni­ties for ac­cred­ited train­ing, to de­velop skills and con­fi­dence so they can in due course move on to work place­ment or col­lege.
