We are excited to announce that from Sunday 12 May we will be running monthly Sunday Yip4Youth sessions!
Yip4Youth is our fun and friendly after school, weekend and School Holiday scheme for 13-16 year olds with disabilites and complex needs.
Yip4Youth ensures that young people with disabilities can meet up with friends and try out new activities in a safe, friendly environment. Yip4Youth provides age-appropriate youth-led activities for teenagers, supported by our qualified and experienced staff.
Activities are chosen by the young people and are mostly centred around days out that encourage life skills for independence such as managing money, interacting with staff, and planning journeys. Young people benefit at Yip4Youth sessions which include trips to theme parks, beach visits, skating, swimming and much more. Yip4Youth also provides young people with an opportunity to socialise in a relaxed, drop-in setting with computers, a pool table, foosball, pinball and games consoles!
Yip4Youth is hosted at the YMCA Sovereign Centre in Reigate, a state of the art venue specifically designed for young people with disabilites and their familes.
To book for a scheme please download the following booking forms. Alternatively, please contact John Brunswick at the YMCA Sovereign Centre:
What a parent said...
As one parent said, following their son's day out at Thorpe Park, “a massive thank you to the team for a great day ... everyone was friendly and helpful ...knowing our children are looked after on a busy event like Thorpe Park is very important to me – this was faultless. It gives me confidence to say John can participate in other events he’d like to do.”
