Brief description of what services your organisation offers:

The core purpose of our service is to create a safe environment during the college holidays for young people to socialise, have fun and learn some vital life skills that will increase independence. We offer a wide variety of daily activities, including supported volunteering and work experience.  We ensure our service gives the young people equal opportunities to develop their skills to allow them to integrate into work placements, mainstream settings or further specialist provisions.  These sessions are designed to encourage physical activity, promoting a healthy lifestyle, learning about finance and opportunities to discuss mental health.
