Regular youth sessions for Disabled young people to develop as individuals
Our Youth programme is open to Disabled young people aged 13-19 years old. We offer a range of regular evening and weekend sessions which help individuals grow in confidence, meet new people and build positive relationships with themselves and each other.
Evening sessions for young people
We provide regular evening sessions for young Disabled / SEND people living in Bristol. We always welcome new people and will ensure that any access needs are met.

The group is also regularly consulted by the local authority and involved in projects with other local organisations.
We are highly experienced in working with Disabled children and young people. Know that they’re in a safe and supportive environment with our friendly user led team.
Weekend sessions for young people
Our regular Saturday club gives Disabled / SEND young people the chance to build a friendship group and have fun whilst providing respite for parents and carers. The young people help choose and decide what activities they would like to do. We provide a range of activities from centre-based delivery to trips and visits within Bristol and further away. Previous trips have included:
- Indoor Surfing
- Longleat Safari Park
- White Water Rafting
- Music and Drama Workshops
- Trampoline Parks
- Day Visits to other cities
Please note we aim to ensure that we provide a range of accessible activities that all Disabled young people will be able to access. To access our Saturday sessions we ask that young people attend our evening sessions so that the staff can build positive relationships and get to know each young person before taking them out and about in the community.
We recognise that every child and family is unique, and there is not a one size fits all approach for the support we offer.
