About the Organisation
Saturday Club is a friendly, targeted group designed for and by young people, 11-19 years with additional support needs. The group offers a wide range of activities that help develop young people’s confidence, life skills and encourages them to engage in their immediate and the wider community.
Staff are passionate about each member of the group having a say in putting forward their ideas towards the planning of the group. Activities include visits and trips, team games, cooking, arts and crafts, sports, swimming and so much more. Staff encourage the young people to be independent and to reach their care plan outcomes to ensure their individual needs are met fully.
