Grantham Journal letter: Please support vulerable people

Have your say

It was with great interest that I read about The Meres leisure centre’s initiative to do something for vulnerable adults in Grantham.

I have a young, very capable but also very vulnerable, son who is desperate to have a place in Grantham where he can go and meet new friends from the area. Being lonely is never any fun, but when you at the same time have a disability that stops you from going to clubs, classes, pubs ... on your own, then you have very little chance of meeting new “mates”.

I would like to urge other parents/carers in a similar situation to let the lesiure centre know that they are interested in the new idea, otherwise it might never happen - and we have seen that too often. Please support this so it can get off the ground and our children can have a happier future.
