About the Organisation
Dal Dy Dir is a charitable organisation working with individuals and their families with disabilities. Using our rurally based four acre site in Newtown, Mid Wales, Dal Dy Dir is able to offer emergency respite placements, respite breaks and day services. We have a philosophy of working with both individuals and their families using an inclusive family approach to ensure the most positive outcome possible for the long term. All experienced professionals, our team are carefully selected for their dedication to both the charity and its clients.
Through daily activities, an individual development plan and ongoing support and encouragement, our supported breaks make a massive difference to challenges that the families are facing. The access to 1-2-1 coaching sessions provide family members space to discuss their issues, make plans to cope with crisis and move forwards. Coaching, counselling and crisis intervention are all part of the interventions on offer. This means that we can target wider issues within a family context and develop plans for when families return home.

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?
Everyone needs a holiday and Dal Dy Dir’s innovative programmes bring families together, create memories and support siblings and the whole family in a settled relaxing non-judgemental atmosphere. With a wide range of activities, their animal therapy sessions featuring tame goats, sheep and chickens, and their forest school and music workshops gives the whole family a chance to learn new skills in a supported warm and safe environment.
How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?
We have a philosophy of working with both individuals and their families using an inclusive family approach to ensure the most positive outcome possible for the long term.
The experience is individually tailored to directly impact the areas where the families feel they need support. We work hard to enable families to spend time together as a whole and provide support to improve relationships and provide opportunities to bond as a family. Tailored activities give family members the opportunity to learn new skills, have new experiences and find ways to develop more independent.
