IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OUR YOUTH CLUB

Our new clubs need support! Unfortunately our new clubs will be postponed until we have received enough interest in people willing to attend them. You can register your interest in the club by sending us an email or text through the following links. Once we have enough people interested we will contact everyone with details of when they are starting. We are also interested to hear your opinion of whether you would be interested in activity clubs for adults or a youth club for children at a different location or day/time, also what sort of activities you like to do. We value your feedback and want to provide you with a service that suits your needs so please speak up as we are open to suggestions.

Our aims at the youth club are to provide a setting that promotes social inclusion through a range of creative and physical activities. We believe that children with additional needs have a right to access a range of social opportunities that promote interaction and wellbeing, in an environment that understands their needs.  The benefits of attending a club are more than just learning a new skill, children develop friendships, confidence, self-esteem, communication skills and feel a valued part of the group.

The range of activities offered are designed to provide something for all and a child led approach is used. We provide structured activities and free choice to encourage individual and team work with an emphasis on personal achievements being celebrated.

Social inclusion

A big part of attending any club is the social benefits it has for individuals. It has proven that regular attendance at a community club increases confidence, self-esteem and interaction skills. For those who don’t want to or find it difficult to participate in activities, we still value your attendance and you will receive a warm welcome. Our aim is to encourage interaction by providing a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with good access for all and the opportunity to make friends and be part of the community.

Sport based activities

We want to improve the fitness and mobility of children through fun activities so there will always be a variety of equipment and activities that can be adapted to individual needs. These will include ball skills, balancing skills, hula and target practice to name a few, which will promote proprioception, coordination, balance, gross motors skills, self-esteem and confidence.

Games

During the session we will play a variety of games to encourage group interaction and social skills such as listening, focus and self-control.

Exploring art and food

Exploring materials is a wonderful way to engage our senses that anyone can join in. Our hands on sensory activities will use a variety of materials such as paint, water, sand and salt dough to encourage creativity, manipulation and improve fine motor skills. We will discover foods using our sight, smell, touch and taste senses.
