A NEW group called the D.A.I.S.Y (Disabled All Inclusive Social Youth) group has been launched in response to demand from local parents and young people.
Open to children with a disability up to the age of 18, it is a new addition to the activities at The Beechtree Youth Project which already meets 3 times a week. The group will run term time only on a Wednesday between 4pm and 5.30pm.
Jobina who runs the group approached me about setting up this group because there is a lack of activities in the community aimed at young people with additional needs. Jobina will be delivering arts and crafts activities, group games for social and life skills and this project will also be a great place for children and their parents/carers to socialise with each other.
Working with Jobina, I hope that we can provide plenty of opportunities for children and young people with additional needs to reach their full potential.
If anyone needs any more info on this or any of the other youth groups we run then please do not hesitate to contact me at the Centre on 01948 258220 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
