Community Link Up aims to integrate people with learning disabilities more fully into the life of the community through friendship. They support people in forming friendships between those who come forward as volunteers and our friends with learning disabilities who have asked "can you find me a friend?"

Their signature 1:1 Junior & 1:1 Senior Club events with live music, outings and other fun things to do gives our members a sense of belonging in a caring environment where they feel valued with a sense of purpose.

Link Up's small team of staff run educational and vocational workshops for people with learning disabilities, supported by dedicated volunteers such as:

Computer Club,
Literacy classes,
travel training,
Money & Me,
Health Wise which includes Keep fit,
cookery and nutrition,
you name it...they will create the activity after consultation with our members and carers who bring up the ideas on how we can offer appropriate support.

How Frustrated Communication found Community Link Up -

The Rotary Club of Pinner has had an association with Community Link Up for many years. Our Trustee, Laurence Magee has been Link Up's auditor for some years. Community Link Up helps children and adults with learning and communication difficulties so we were pleased to add our help.

Rotary President, Trevor Walker, has helped clients of Community Link Up with their CVs and interview technique from which they have progressed to obtain job placements.

How Frustrated Communication has helped:

In Mach 2009 we provided funds to support Community Link Up's Junior 1&1 Club.

In Mach 2010 we provided further funds to support their Adult Computer Club, where between 12 and 16 adults with learning and communication difficulties are helped to gain computer skills.

In Mach 2011 again we helped to fund their Adult Computer Club.

Feedback on the resources provided by Frustrated Communication:

Our Trustee, David Bays, attended a couple of Community Link Up's Adult Computer Club sessions and was very impressed by the work they were doing.

The members clearly got a lot out of the sessions in terms: of increasing their confidence with "things computers", their general self-confidence and making friends.

Each Community Link Up member is teamed up with a teenage, volunteer, from a local school, who helps them to work with Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point. These volunteers do a fantastic job as do the organisers of these sessions.

Well done everyone.
