Setting up for Christmas

For those who love setting up Christmas, make sure to reach out to friends and family with disabilities who may need help. Alternatively, they might even want to help you! This is a great time of year to bring family and friends together no matter what. Some great ways to reach out and ask for help include:

  • Setting up Christmas trees and house decorations,
  • Christmas countdown/advent style events (which they can be involved in remotely too!),
  • Cards, emails, photos, and similar holiday traditions,
  • Helping them buy presents or going shopping if needed, and
  • Christmas movie night!

No matter what, there are so many options for spending time with family and making Christmas accessible to all . If you ever need more help, make sure to talk to support workers or organisations who can help you out during this period.
