Renfrewshire Council

Flexicare

Flexicare provides a service young people and adults (14+) with learning disabilities and autism living in Renfrewshire.

We have a network of trained volunteers and sessional workers who offer personalised support to help people with a learning disability or autism participate fully in social, recreational and educational opportunities within their local community. 

We achieve this by:

  • Actively promoting and supporting people with learning disabilities or autism into every aspect of community living.
  • Providing support to families caring for a son or daughter with a learning disability or autism.
  • Making it easy for people with learning disabilities or autism to access a range of social and leisure services.
  • Promoting awareness of learning disabilities and autism.

Adult activity groups 
Weekly groups based at a local school or community centre providing a range of leisure activities and evenings out. 

One-to-one befriending
Our befriending service links up people for affordable social and leisure activities such as swimming, bowling or going to the cinema.

Going places
Going Places brings together three or four people with similar interests who, with the support of a volunteer or worker, meet up every two weeks to enjoy social activities.

Volunteers needed
All of the services that Flexicare offer are provided by a network of volunteers and sessional workers who are recruited, trained and supported by the Flexicare team. 

Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds are urgently required. 

Experience of working with people with a learning disability is not essential as training and support will be provided.
