Better Lives Partnership is part of a new pilot programme to create wider opportunities for people with additional support needs.
The ASN Learning Network is supported by South of Scotland Enterprise and funded by Inspiring Scotland. The aims of this network are to increase employment opportunities, share best practices, and encourage innovation as well as identify barriers to opportunities for autistic people, those with learning disabilities and those with sensory impairment.
Carolyn Kennedy, Better Lives Partnership’s Chief Executive, says: “Better Lives Partnership (BLP) is delighted to be involved with this group. Having given a ‘spotlight presentation’ to the Network at their meeting in early April I am delighted that BLP has been included in the Report’s section on Examples of Innovative Solutions”
In April 2022 the ASN Learning Network released its first report which summarises the background and outlines the aims of the network, and discussions from sessions with members. The report is free and available to the public to read at:
Better Lives Partnership is delighted to join the ASN Learning Network. The network grew from a joint concept between the Usual Place of Dumfries and BANG in the Scottish Borders. Better Lives Partnership will feature in the spotlight in the second report
