Today we’d like to give a huge shout out to David Williams and the FAST project based in Ferryside. This brilliant service offers fix and shift training for vulnerable adults and here JJ gets expert instruction from David on how to paint a door.

We hope you all had a splendid Halloween. As parties go, our Plwmp care home couldn’t have done a better job. Well done to everyone who took part – not least Tom for winning the costume competition and willingness to get soaked!

Aber All Stars

Following recent media coverage of Aber All Stars, ILS would like to say a big thank you for the help and support given to our service users over the years. Without this support, countless parents, families, coaches, support workers and players would be denied participating in this brilliant community project. Keep up the good work!
