No service users – working alongside volunteers from all walks of life and industry professionals everyone in a CCI squad is an essential part of the team.
A focus on an individual’s interests and abilities – Individuals are trained, encouraged supervised and occasionally cajoled to participate in vocational landscaping, horticulture, woodcraft and public art projects with an emphasis on learning new skills and trying new challenges.
Never boring – individuals can expect to be involved in all types of work, in all types of weather! We have more than 10 years experience in safely and successfully engaging vulnerable adults in placements where they experience real working environments as an integral part of the team.
If you feel that you have a need for a level of care or support in your daily living then you may be eligible for SDS and in the first instance you should contact your Council to discuss this with a social worker.
For more information on eligibility criteria and how to access SDS please visit http://www.selfdirectedsupportscotland.org.uk/service-users
If you wish to speak to someone at CCI about an SDS placement, please call 01555 664211. We look forward to hearing from you.
Clydesdale Community Initiatives was initially set-up in 2002 to enable young people at risk and adults with mental health issues to develop a derelict site in Lanark, South Lanarkshire. This project was so successful, with both groups gaining exceptional skills and confidence from their involvement, that it was decided they would undertake further projects.
