Our Programmes

Our programmes of holiday and out of school activities provide the children and young people with ASD the opportunity to experience play activities in a safe and supported environment. It gives them the structure and familiarity they need and enable them to gain confidence, independence and essentially have fun with others who understand them. The age requirements range from 5-18. There is a charge for these groups however this will vary depending on the activity but youth group sessions start from £4.
