13-17 Year Olds

Youth City Skills

Course dates

August 2018

Every two years we run our Youth City Skills course for young people between 13-17 years old . This course idea came from our youth advisors who wanted us to a run a social course for young people where they could be explore a city and bring along a friend. The course was held in Bristol last year for the first time and was a huge success. With trips to the zoo, bowling, dinner out and lots of socialising, the three day course was a lot of fun. You will have the chance to meet other young people with spinal cord injury and build your confidence in getting around a city.

Our next course is being held in August 2018 so watch this space for more information and exact dates.

Multi Activity courses

Course dates

Summer 2019

Every two years we run a multi activity course for young people between 13-17 years old. Whatever your level of injury, you’ll have the chance to try out a range of outdoor activities including canoeing and kayaking, climbing and abseiling, sailing and hand cycling.

The course is held at the Calvert Trust in the Lake District and they have lots of experience of running courses for people who use a wheelchair or may need a bit more support.

Our courses are a great opportunity to try new things, meet other people your age with a spinal cord injury and have some fun!

Our next course is being held in 2019 so watch this space for more information.
