New support group launched for neurodivergent people in Calderdale
A new service to connect neurodivergent people in Calderdale has launched.
People in Calderdale who are neurodivergent may become increasingly isolated and vulnerable during the current Covid-19 crisis.
Keeping Neurodivergent People Connected aims to support local autistic and other neurodivergent people during the pandemic by keeping them more connected with support services and each other.
The service is available to anyone aged over 18 who has the following:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD),
- Any other form of neurological difference, diagnosed or self-identified.
- People with learning disabilities.
Specialist staff will be reaching out to people not already known to services or accessing support. They will offer the opportunity to discuss Covid-19, talk through any worries and find out about local resources and sources of advice.
People’s safety will be assessed, and they will be offered access to other local services, if appropriate. The service runs seven days a week from 9 am to 10pm until 12 July 2020.
To access the service contact 07441399833 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please obtain permission before referring someone else.
Keeping Neurodivergent People Connected is delivered in Calderdale by The Society 4 Neurodiversity (S4Nd) and Cloverleaf Advocacy in partnership with West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership and Inclusion North.
