What does the club offer?
We support the members in taking an active part in the community, helping them to learn travel skills and also every day skills such as paying for an item in the shop or ordering a meal in a restaurant. These sessions are staffed and the members are given support according to their level of need.
This club is specifically designed to go out and about and take the members to access mainstream activities, such as the cinema, go karting, shopping, swimming and bowling. The young people take an active role in planning the activities which normally take place between 10am and 2pm. They are encouraged to manage their own money and use their social skills to do things like book their own train tickets.
The club has been very successful in facilitating friendships and helping young people with ASD find the confidence to access mainstream activities outside of the club.
