The Short Breaks funded Saturday evening provision for young people age 18-25 launched in 2011 and has proven to be a great success.
For young people dealing with the transition to adulthood a support network of peers is invaluable. Our weekly club for young people entering adulthood offers a safe, relaxing environment where young people can be themselves and develop independence but with the support of trained and empathic staff.
The Yard becomes a focal point for friendships which grow much wider than the confines of the playground and young people, their parents and carers all tell us about increased confidence and interests which have grown out of attending the Saturday club.
Having had time to gel as a group, the young people are now venturing out with the confines of the playground and planning their own activities and trips with the support of staff.
