To celebrate Learning Disability Week, we want to highlight 5 services available to young people across the Royal Borough of Greenwich. From our hub activities to partners and everything in between, take a look at what we have available for young people with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) or learning difficulties.
Integrated Youth Hubs
Young Greenwich’s four main youth hubs deliver a range of free activities, offer dedicated support and opportunities for young people. A range of safe environments situated across the Royal Borough of Greenwich, the Youth Hubs accommodate young people with all abilities and with each session being integrated, young people feel welcomed and supported by both staff and young people.
The Anchor Sendfriendly Centre
In partnership with Young Greenwich, The Anchor Sendfriendly centre (TAS centre) incorporates communication/ language, personal, social & emotional development, physical development within a safe space for children and young Adults with S.E.N.D. This exciting programme also includes a variety of activities and trips to help with positive outcomes for each person. TAS creates a care plan to help each child maximize their full potentials, all done within an environment that understands S.E.N.D from a Parent and Professional perspective.
Metro Judo Club
Partner of Young Greenwich, the award-winning, Metro Judo Club offers free Judo sessions to all young people including autistic children. Driving ‘Judo for Autism’, Metro Judo help support young people to learn the martial art and have opportunities across the nation and globally.
Shooters Hill After School Club
Shooters Hill After School Club is another partner of Young Greenwich offering a youth club provision designed for young people with additional needs. Suitable for a range of disabilities, the activities help young people socialise, and gain life skills.
Delivered by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT), the Short Breaks programme delivers fun, positive experiences for targeted children and young people aged 12-17 with disabilities who live in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, enabling them to spend time away from their main carers, whilst also giving parents and carers a rest from caring duties.
Inclusion is important to us and we want to make sure young people have the opportunity to be a part of our community. If you have any questions or would like to enquire more about what we have available, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
