Reach Out Family Support

Reach Out Family Support

The Pixel Fund is supporting our Reach Out home support service with the aim of recruiting an additional 40 volunteers over the coming year. Reach Out is a free service that places volunteers with families who are struggling with autism. Volunteers are well trained and supported by a behaviour specialist, and the volunteers themselves have a range of backgrounds including psychology students and speech and language therapists.

The Pixel Fund has generously supported our HD Specialist Service - a network of eight regional Huntington’s disease Specialist teams across Scotland who ensure the needs of individuals and families are understood by providing specialist assessment, ensure that person-centred support that is right for each individual is in place by acting as care coordinators, supporting other agencies and improving quality of support through training and education.
