Disability Project

Our Disability Project is aimed specifically for vulnerable young people with a variety of additional needs including autistic spectrum, downs syndrome and global developmental delay; all of which regularly attend our Disability Project.

We offer a wide range of fun activities during each session including cooking every other week; Art session every week, open mic once a month, climbing wall once a month; pool, table-tennis tournaments, listening to favourite music and basically chilling with friends and peer volunteers.

We also offer a range of activities and trips planned that promote independent living skills and enhance social and emotional wellbeing, which are fun and chosen by the young people that attend the group.

We have a high participation and retention rate, which is continuously growing. We are proud of our experienced staff and young people who volunteer their time to support and be positive influences to the young people that are part of the project.

The sessions happen every Tuesday and Wednesday (5-8:30pm). Please not that from the 2d of February, the Wednesday sessions will stop. The Tuesday sessions will continue as normal.
