Saturday Youth Club for young people with learning disabilities

Kool Club offers young people with learning disabilities aged 14-25 a chance to make friends, experience the new, take the lead, get involved in community life and most importantly have a great time.

Kool Club runs on alternate Saturdays throughout the year and the seasonal programmes are chosen in advance by group members. Past activities at Kool Club include Zip Wiring at the Eden Project, Skiing and Sno-tubing at Plymouth Ski Slope, community gardening, mountain biking, residential trips, cooking and much more.

New friends and experiences

Kool Club activities take place in a relaxed and supportive community environment. Members can make friends and develop life skills as they prepare for and become an adult.

Community inclusion

From giving back to the community by tidying up green spaces, to being an active part of it by joining Pride celebrations or running stalls at fairs and markets, Kool Club strives for young people with learning disabilities to feel included, confident and to help the local community to become more inclusive.

Learning Independence

Young people get the opportunity to learn life skills to help them grow their independence and confidence; from shopping and preparing meals to travel by bus/train/boat & even plane. The social trips away from home with friends are important for the young people we work with, helping both them and their family to believe that they can do it.

Problem Solving

Whilst Kool Club is a ‘held space’, young people are encouraged to set their own ground rules such as establishing Bullying Ground Rules, and to support each other in staying safe which you can see through an Online Safety video the group created.

CoronavirusSocial distancing guidelines mean that Lifeworks services may be subject to change or not running as they usually do
Keeping people safe is always our top priority. We will run services in the usual way if we feel it is safe to do so or if we are advised not to by central and local Government. We are currently offering short-breaks at our Robins children's service. We are also getting set to run in-person short breaks at weekends and during the holidays with our Youth and Holiday Bubbles. Our Community Projects team continue to offer a varied programme of online activities via our platform, Safe-Space. Whatever social distancing measures are in place over the coming months, we will endeavour to offer engaging activities for everyone via this channel. Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
