All our sessions are staffed by our team of professional youth workers and volunteers who are highly trained and passionate about providing a safe, friendly and positive environment for all our members.
We offer our services to young people aged 8-19 years old and up to the age of 21 for young people with disabilities. We understand the issues that affect young people today and through building positive relationships, we provide support and guidance helping to ease the transition from childhood to adulthood.
Through establishing positive relationships, staff identify areas in which young people may be experiencing difficulties and sign post them to some of the programmes the Club runs such as its award-winning Mentoring project or Enterprise employment schemes.
We are proud of creating a nurturing environment for members with disabilities by integrating young people of all ages, backgrounds, beliefs and abilities in positive activities that create unity and acceptance.
