Activities for young people

We know young people often want to meet others in similar situations, so we have a range of activities specifically for young people aged 14+. This includes weekend social events where young adults and their parents/carers can have fun, meet others and learn about important topics affecting their care as they transition to adult services. We also have a youth group for young people and their siblings, which regularly goes out on day trips like laser tag or bowling. Booking in advanced required, please call the Care Team or book online.
