Young people achieve great things on our summer courses


Ever wondered what goes on during our youth courses?

This year children and young people had lots to say about the summer courses, like how they learnt to back wheel balance without falling, how to go over rough surfaces, they will interact more with others when they are home and how just being there has shown them what is possible.  Parents gained too, with one mum saying how much the course has pushed her daughter and made her realise what her daughter can do

Our young leaders gained from the experience too:

I learnt so much from other people like how personal assistants interact with the person they are supporting and I learnt about power chairs. I learnt from the group leading team how to ask everyone’s opinion and check in with the whole team on how they are feelingIt was challenging when I had to explain to the personal assistants on how to support a young person as sometimes they didn’t listen but I felt confident telling them what I thought!
