Service User Activity Programme

Rather than being a passive recipient of services, citizens can become actively involved in selecting and shaping the support they receive.

The vision for day opportunities for autistic people and individuals with learning disabilities was set out in the Scottish Government’s 2013 strategy ‘The Keys to Life’. This proposes a move towards day opportunities which:

  • Provide people with an environment in which they can directly experience the workplace and learn how to cope and thrive in this setting
  • Design programmes for skills development and progression
  • Use day opportunities as a base for participation in the wider community

These statements have become integral to our vision for Makers.
