New friends and experiences

Our Youth Group 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, Our Youth 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.
