All different all connected
Our Youth Service offers exciting activities to young people aged 14-25 years with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Our activities and programmes give your young people access to experiences that develop their health, creative, social, and emotional wellbeing. They can build on existing friendships and make new ones; develop communication and life skills that will help them to remain safe and healthy; learn how to make a positive contribution at home and in their community.
A significant focus in all of our youth activities is to support young people and their families in the transition from Children’s to Adult services.
Our Youth Holiday Scheme for young people aged 14 to 18 years arranges activities in all school holidays except Christmas for young people with a broad spectrum of needs and abilities.
The activities are based on the young people’s likes and interests and include arts and crafts, cooking, multi-media technology, games, sports as well as outings to access local places of interest in London.
Our Evening Club (term time only) runs from 6.30 – 8.30pm and gives young people the opportunity to have fun, meet their friends and learn new skills
We encourage our visitors to form meaningful relationships, independently express their ideas, work together as a team and learn key socialisation skills as they transition into adulthood.
Islington Youth Project
In our Islington Youth Project we work to engage with young people age 13+ with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) to support their transition into and engagement with universal youth providers in Islington.
Linking in with Samuel Rhodes School in Islington, we have created a communications group for young people with learning disabilities. The group chose and designed the project name and branding to highlight two very powerful quotations that came from the young people: “all different, all connected” and “be happy and inspire others”.
Additional Youth Projects
We also offer a number of other youth and young adult activities at various times of the year such as our Transition Project (14 – 18 years) and our Saturday Young Adults Project (18 – 25 years) ; these offer themed based programme designed to support young people in to adulthood and to develop their independence skills.
