Learning Disability Week: Tom and Billy

Posted: May 13, 2019

Tom and Billy, residents at Gowrie Care’s Milton Street service in Dundee, are celebrating Learning Disability Week by telling us how they both feel part of their community.

The pair regularly enjoy going down to their local shops where they are now on first name terms with the employees there.

They frequently participate in events and activities in their area. Their favourite day of the week is Friday as they attend Boccia, a precision ball sport, which involves a huge amount of social interaction, enthusiasm and of course, a lot of fun!

They then walk to the near-by fish and chip shop where they have a friendly chat with the staff there before ordering their fish suppers – which always gets a big thumbs up!
