This year NCS Challenge volunteers did two separate projects with us; one at Tresham Play Centre, the other at Kingsbridge Road, our short breaks service for adults.
At Tresham they made a short film with the children and staff. Iqbal, Play and Youth Service Manager, said ‘It was a fun day, the young people made such a great film’.
At Kingsbridge Road they did a garden makeover, it was one of the hottest days of the year and despite the heat they did a great job.
They also fundraised for us with a ‘Dragons Den’ style challenge, with a presentation on learning disabilities and won £200 and collected a further £70.
A big thanks to all the young people who took the challenge and The Challenge Coordinators.

COVID -19 has disproportionately affected people with learning disabilities, however the government is failing to ensure appropriate testing.
