Yip4Youth is our fun and friendly youth club, weekend and school holiday scheme for 12-18 year olds with disabilities and complex needs.
Yip4Youth ensures that young people with disabilities can meet up with friends and try out new activities in a safe and friendly environment. Yip4Youth provides age-appropriate youth-led activities for teenagers, supported by our qualified and experienced staff.
“Yip4Youth means our daughter has some time to enjoy herself and have fun in a safe inclusive environment. We also have the peace of mind that her needs are catered for and that she will be cared for excellently. In a nut shell it means the world to us.”
Activities are chosen by the young people and aim to promote social interaction, whilst building confidence and independence. Each session is based around a particular theme, with structured activities planned to reflect this. Activities include cooking, sports, photography and drama, even making movies!
Yip4Youth also runs regular trips out into the community, allowing young people to develop new skills and experience a range of activities. Trips include farm visits, swimming, the cinema and trips to London. During these trips, young people are encouraged to develop and use everyday skills, such as asking and paying for items, to develop their independence.
