Ayrshire residents can find out more about Sense Scotland at their roadshow in Ardrossan this weekend.

On Saturday November 12 members of the public can visit the charity’s Ayrshire TouchBase on 41 Princes Street in Ardrossan to learn about their work and how they could help you or a loved one.

Taking place between 1-3.30pm, the day will allow people to find out more about their welfare rights service, take part in art, storytelling, and music sessions, or chat with someone over a cup of tea.

TouchBase worker Joanne said: “People can come along with their family members, that could be parents with young children or it could be parents of adults as well.

“It’s an opportunity for parents and carers just to chat to one another as well because we appreciate with covid families have missed out on that.

“That’s often the part that families enjoy the most – having the chance to speak to other people who are in a similar situation to themselves.”

Sense Scotland supports “people with communication support needs associated with complex and sensory disabilities, and their families.”

The charity provides services, activities, events and programmes to the people they support.

While the roadshow is free, booking on the event’s page on Eventbrite is advised.
