Disability Services Overview

Inclusion, Integration, Inspiration!

We believe that everyone should be able to live a full and active life, regardless of their ability or health. We support children, young people and adults with disabilities or complex needs by providing specialised activities that promote independence and give families a short break.

Henry’s story

Whether through sport and exercise, social activities or volunteering – we strive to make it possible for people with disabilities to participate in all our mainstream services and also run specific projects for those with higher support needs.

Children

Face2Face is a befriending project and weekly drop-in parents group for parents with a child recently diagnosed with a disability.

Yippee offers activity playschemes in Reigate for children aged 5-11 with disabilities or complex needs. Yippee provides a safe and fun environment for children with high support needs to play and learn. For children with less profound disabilities, we also have inclusive places on our mainstream playschemes.

Yip4Youth offers leisure time activities in Reigate for young disabled people aged 12-18. At Yip4Youth we aim to help young people gain skills for independence, as well as have fun and make new friends.

Young People & Adults

Our Disability Sports Club runs on Friday evenings in Caterham for people aged 18+ with a disability. Come along and try out at least four different activities each week and make new friends.

Friday Night Project is a youth club in Redhill for young people aged 16 to 35 with a disability who are active and enjoy sports, trips to the cinema or to hang out with friends.

YmmmmCA Café is open every Thursday term-time between 11.00am-1.30pm at the YMCA Sovereign Centre in Reigate. Run by young people with additional needs, the café allows them to develop their independence and employability skills.

Exercise Referral sessions focus on the needs of adults of all ages with chronic health conditions (such as heart attacks, strokes or mental health issues) or those with any disability.

Live It! is a sport and fitness programme for those aged 30+ with a learning disability. Participants have the opportunity to benefit from team activities, develop their communication skills, increase their confidence and improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

Boccia Club – Children and adults of all ages with additional needs or disabilities can enjoy the world of the Paralympic sport of Boccia with the YMCA in Redhill. Runs every other Saturday.

Y-Mania is our nightclub experience for adults with disabilities.

We also provide inclusive physical activity sessions for schools.
