Other notes

We empower young people, providing accessible but challenging programmes and residential holidays which put disabled young people at the centre of what we do. We have championed a reverse inclusion approach to empower disabled children and young people to access youth opportunities. We use a diverse range of activities to meet the needs of children and young    people. Our pioneering peer lead approach enables disabled and non disabled children and young people to access a range of activities together.
