• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

Feeling in need of some time to yourself? We may be able to help

We recognise that for some of our members and their families, the increasing weeks of isolation are proving hard.

Because of the new government guidance around people with autism and learning difficulties, we may now be able to give you more of a helping hand by taking your loved one out for their exercise, to give you a bit of time. 

In our last newsletter we highlighted an important update to the UK coronavirus rules for people with autism and learning difficulties. This stated that people with learning disabilities or autism can now leave the house for exercise more than once a day and can travel outside of their local area under current lockdown measures.

The new advice also states that although those with autism and mental health conditions are advised to limit their travel and stay as close to their local area as possible, carers and support workers who do not live in their household can accompany them.

This means that, as long as you are happy for us to do so, we’re now able to give our families a bit of time by taking members out for their daily exercise. However you want to use that much needed time, it’s up to you, maybe you need to get some food shopping in, get a few jobs done, have a long bath or simply have some valuable space to yourself?

You might even want to get some space on the beautiful green land at our Standish site, which is possible by prior arrangement.

If you would like to discuss how we might be able to help you, please do call us on 01257 472 900 or email info@my-life.org.uk
