Who are we?

We are parents of young people with “complex“  needs who are about to go through this process in central Aberdeenshire.


Just when we thought we had successfully negotiated children’s services our young people reach adulthood and we have to start all over again getting to grips with adult services.

We have a lot of questions and you may have too

In July 2015 the group was approved as a charity. Our registered number is SC045831. Our trustees are all volunteers and most are going through or have been through the transition process. If you are interested in getting more information please contact us by e-mailing Alternatively you can call us on 07516 852814. All queries will be treated as confidential.

The Galaxy Group is aimed at parents/carers of young people with additional support needs in the 16 plus age range but is open to any family with concerns over the child to adult transition.

If this is you, then, might you be interested in finding out how the Galaxy Group can help get some of these questions answered and to share information?  Parents/carers of young people who have already gone through the process are also very welcome.

- For parents and carers of young people with Additional Support Needs (ASN) to have a positive experience of going through the transition process by providing support, advice, and information.

- To enhance, improve and expand the choices that young people with complex ASN have by encouraging parents/carers to consider Self Directed Support as a means of providing a greater range of social/leisure/ life long learning opportunities.

We hold information evenings and coffee morning/support meetings for parents and carers and have set up social activities for the young people such as our walking group and bowling nights.

We are able to provide this through funding received from NHS Grampian’s Carers Information Strategy. We hope to sustain the future of the Galaxy Group and in July 2015 became a charity - Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) SC045831.
