St. Albans and Harpenden Friendship Scheme gives carers a breaks and enables adults with a learning disability to access the community through leisure and social activities.

The Friendship Scheme volunteers enable an adult with a learning disability to meet friends, make new friends and gain in confidence.  The scheme gives people the opportunity to enjoy a pastime or leisure activity.

This gives carers a break, knowing that the person they care for is looked after and enjoying themselves.

Quote “Comes home happy, and this makes life happy at home”
