Friends for Leisure - 15UP

Description

Disabled young people aged 15 - 21, who are registered with Friends for Leisure, come together in the company of Friends for Leisure volunteers for a regular fortnightly youth group in Congleton to take part in fun, age-appropriate activities and chill n’ chat. 

Often our activities have been suggested by the young people. Sometimes we arrange to go out together and sometimes the group have sessions focused on learning new skills which will be useful to the young people as they get older such as money matters. The group has a tuck shop. We are unable to provide personal care. Every other Thursday from 6:30pm – 8pm during term time. 

Booking is essential at all Friends for Leisure activities. Please contact 01260 275333 to book a place.
