More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

We are a weekly youth club for disabled, disadvantaged and able bodied children from Bath and surrounding areas; including Bristol, Wiltshire and Mendip. We support children who for various reasons are unable to access other social and leisure activities within their community. This may be due to their physical and learning needs, social needs or financial needs. For many this is the only opportunity they have for a night out with their friends away from school or family and the only break their parents and carers have. We are a registered charity, with no funds from the local authority, so are reliant on our own fundraising, donations and gifts in kind to continue providing this vital service. We have a part time coordinator who is responsible for the day to day running of the club and dedicated team of trained and reliable volunteers. During the holidays we arrange day trips and an annual holiday. We run an active program of activities including: SPORTS, ARTS, CRAFTS, BOWLING, CINEMA, QUIZZES, MUSIC, DANCE AND MUCH MORE The programme is aimed at meeting all the needs of our members and includes their suggestions and ideas as much as possible. Our volunteers support the member's individual needs enabling everyone to be fully involved in all activities. Our volunteers come from all walks of life - and we're currently in need of more volunteers, so if you're 18 years of age or over and would like to get involved we'd love to have you. No experience necessary, just willingness to try anything, be flexible and have fun!!
