Summer 2021 Youth Bubbles and Safe-Space

Weekend short breaks and online activities for young people with learning disabilities

Summer Activities – 19 April – 24 July

We are delighted to bring to you Lifeworks Community Programmes’ Spring/Summer activities for young people with learning disabilities.

Our Youth Bubbles have lots happening, but things are a little different. We are now offering two Bubbles that will create opportunities to socialise and get active for a younger and older age group. Our Totnes group will work with young people aged 11-18 and our Torbay group will work with young people aged 19+. We also have plenty going on in Safe-Space online, to keep you having fun, connecting with others and trying new things.
