Helping our voice get stronger 28 Oct 2016
This project will maintain the capacity of this user-led organisation supporting its members to represent and campaign on behalf of people with learning disabilities throughout Scotland. Funding will enable the continuation of a National Development Worker post to maintain and develop the infrastructure of the organisation, disseminate information to the Board and wider membership, organise training, and support the network of local branches.
This new funding will enable the group to develop a support service for children and young people residing in Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian, which will assist them to become successful learners, confident individuals and effective contributors to their communities.
This group will organise an informal event for friends and families of missing people from across Scotland. The event will be held in Edinburgh in December 2017, and people from across Scotland will be invited to attend and meet other people in similar circumstances and share their experiences.
Positive Transitions Service 08 Nov 2018
This group will use the funding to develop their Positive Transitions service in the North East of Edinburgh providing support to children, young people, and families experiencing challenging circumstances. The service will involve befriending, art therapy, family support and social outings. Additionally parental and school engagement will support young people who are disengaged from school and have difficulty forming relationships.
Connectors 01 Apr 2017
This project will work with people who lack basic digital skills and voluntary sector staff who convene support groups for them to engage in. They will recruit, train and support teams of volunteers to coach people on basic digital skills at groups or activities that people are already attending. They will also identify one or two key people at each group and work with them to embed digital skills coaching in their day-to-day interactions with those they support. The project will work with people in places and groups that they already attend, e.g. tenant fora in sheltered housing, day centres, community centres, food banks, youth clubs. Each place will be visited at least three times by the project, (1) an initial visit to start the conversation and complete a Basic Digital Skills initial Assessment; (2) a second visit focused on coaching participants on skills gaps; (3) a final visit including some direct coaching, re-assessment of Basic Digital Skills and some legacy planning. The focus will be on identifying what participants are most interested in learning, so that they maintain a sense of motivation. The training for volunteers and also for group leaders at organisations we visit will be delivered in partnership with their local O2 Digital Guru, and will include content on capturing bespoke "how to guides" for people who struggle to remember what they have learned.
Social Innovation Academy 02 Dec 2016
Our innovative/creative “Social-Innovation-Academy” will provide a unique opportunity bringing together a diverse group of 24-people; considered to be disadvantaged and facing socio-economic-marginalisation. We will work with them to mitigate the effects of welfare reform,combat inequality,promote social inclusion and encourage engagement with their community. With our support,and the support they offer each other,they will increase the capacity and resilience of their communities and third-sector-organisations to provide people with the support and skills they need;at the same time as increasing their own confidence,building problem solving skills and employability. We value diversity and encourage people to share their lived experiences/knowledge; to solve social issues;for their benefit and their communities. Workshops over 36-days/4-months will train them in community consultation, social research, community development, and methods to design innovative solutions to social issues. Through workshops and seminars; we will then provide them with opportunities to put their enthusiasm, energy, passion, new skills and team-approach to work with one of our community partners / third-sector-organisations. In teams of 8 people they’ll see the process through from consulting stakeholders, identifying issues, developing ideas, to making recommendations and trialling them. The identified community partners/third sector organisations are seeking support with helping people make the most of the digital world, look at local housing issues and ways to encourage family learning to benefit school pupils and parents/carers. Training will be provided in a highly supportive environment. Our established team of volunteer trainers/mentors will provide the sessions with a staff member coordinating the programme. Open University(Opening Educational Practices in Scotland Project), Queen Margaret University and NESTA have supported us in developing the training programme by providing free access to all of their open source/online learning materials for us to use and adapt. Overall participants benefit, local charities and the people they serve making it a win-win-win. Quite special we think!!

Grant to People Know How 15 Mar 2019
180 children and young people in North East Edinburgh facing a range of challenges at home will receive tailored support to increase their confidence, engage more at school and feel more positive about their future and their role in the community.
There are an estimated 120,000 children and adults with learning disabilities in Scotland. (SCLD 2103). People 1st Scotland report a recent backward trend in the treatment of PWLD. Operating through an inclusive model, with lived experience at the centre of the process, People 1st Scotland propose to work through its national membership, to draft new a law under the United National Convention on the Rights of Person’s with Disabilities. The proposal will enable PWLD to engage in widespread discussions on issues and legislations that directly affect them. The new legal framework will allow PWLD to be seen as human beings and treated as such, rather than as “mentally disordered”.
