Young people and their parents from across East Staffordshire are being encouraged to show they have the BACT attitude and join a weekly youth session designed for young people with disabilities.
Delivered by staff from Burton Albion Community Trust young people will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities ranging from Football and Dance to arts and crafts, cookie decorating and themed activities to suit the seasons.
Based at the Burton Albion Community Hub from 6pm-8pm every Monday night £2 per child per week, participants will be encouraged to develop their social skills, build independence in the facilities kitchen and IT suite, while allowing parents to stay on site out of view allowing them to have the confidence that there child is safe.
While the staff cannot provide one to one care for young people the staff will work with the young people and parents to ensure there needs are considered and the activities available reflect this. All staff and volunteers on site are DBS checked and the facility has access ramps, FREE parking, appropriate WC facilities and FREE Wifi.
Health and Inclusion Manager John Widdowson said “This club is a great opportunity for the young people to be active, socialise in an environment which will allow them to grow and develop.”
“The sessions are designed to be fun so there is music, a tuck shop, pool table, Nintendo wii and staff on site to deliver games, sports and non-traditional activities.
