Hello @Lucy411. What are your interests/hobbies? There are lots of activities for disabled people out there. Your local council website should have more information on activities specifically for disabled folks- start by looking on there. Or, you can ask around and see if anyone can help point you in the right direction. Do you love dancing? Music? Literature? If you are keen on acting, find out about drama clubs for disabled adults. I enjoy writing so I formed my own writing club solely for disabled people over 18 years of age. Good luck! It is a great way to meet other disabled people as well. Alternatively you could volunteer. There are volunteering positions for disabled people too. Have a look online. See which ones are appropriate and start volunteering. This website has details of where to begin searching. http://oxme.info/cms/health/activities-young-people-disabilities
Nice to meet you @Lucy411! I too have CP, how are you doing today?Is there anything we can do to make you feel less overwhelmed? It's not a pleasant feeling.
Have you considered university of the third age or not @Lucy411?This is a international movement for retired folks who need simulation mentally and physically too. You can find more information on their website https://www.u3a.org.uk. It is a great way to meet new people and learn a new skill at the same time! Chances are you will find something that catches your interest, given the number of groups across all areas of the UK. There are even activity groups you can join. It costs £12 to become a member.
Hi @Lucy411, volunteering sounds like a great idea! Here are a list of volunteering opportunities that Scope offer, this includes being a community champion on the online community. Also, here is some other information about volunteering.
