This project provides after school activity sessions for children & young people with a range of learning disabilities, including their siblings, helping them to improve their communication skills, grow in confidence, build positive relationships and reduce their feelings of isolation.
We are working towards a world where people with learning disabilities, autism and their families have the support they need to enjoy the same rights, freedoms and quality of life as people within the wider community. After school support is essential to achieving this goal as these children’s specific needs are not specifically provided for within mainstream society. Equally for parents/carers this is valued respite time to support their individual needs and/or employment requirements.
Focus on helping Young People with Learning disabilities (YPLD) and their siblings to achieve positive differences in their lives, via fun, exciting and developmentally challenging sessions. Activities are based around enhancing independence, personal safety, reducing social isolation, improving social skills and cultivating health and wellbeing. They will be supported by a variety of social/educational activities of their choosing, facilitated by trained and experienced staff and volunteers.
