YOUTH & LEISURE SERVICE
Evening services for socialising and developing skills for our young people
The Tower Projects Youth and Leisure service provide an evening service for young people with disabilities aged between 11–25 years old that works towards the Youth Service Curriculum (making adjustments for our targeted members).
The young people take part in a range of activities both on and off site. On-site activities include; art and crafts, educational, fun and cognitive games, which enhance their numeracy, literacy, social and cognitive skills. They learn basic computer skills, lifelong learning skills that promote confidence and self-esteem. They engage in debates and discussion with professional i.e. local police, fire emergency services, and the medical field. Alongside these structured sessions we also provide activities of snooker, sports, keep fit, cooking and team/quiz games. The members have participated in various accredited courses, including the arts, design, music and film making.
Respecting the Every Child Matters ethos, members of mixed abilities choose from a range of activities both on and off site that aim to teach lifelong learning skills that promote confidence and self-esteem.
A big thank you to everyone; from the folks running the activities, to the drivers of the minibuses, to the people behind the scenes that I don't see...thank you all for your dedication, hard work and your enthusiasm!"
