Better Lives Partnership
Better Lives Partnership was set up in 2016 with the expressed aim of delivering and improving the services available for children and young people affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and additional barriers, their families and carers and those who support them.
Our projects aim to develop and deliver a range of opportunities for children and young people with Autism and related disabilities in Dumfries and Galloway. Each programme starts with the young people and builds on their existing skills and attributes rather than focusing on a career area.
There is no time limit thus enabling each young person the time and support they need to achieve their ‘best’ outcome and each programme is flexible and able to be guided by the needs of the individual young person.
Currently, we offer; Bridge to Employment; Bridge to Business; and Bridge to Creative. To find out more about each of these projects and what their aims are for our young people check out our website.
