Moves for Manton attenders
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.
