Choose from a wide and varied range of activities and support for children and young people with SENs, Learning Disabilities and Physical Disabilities.

Our Aim

Our aim is to help promote both physical and mental well-being to young people with Special Educational Needs and Learning Disabilities, whilst ensuring of course, that they are enjoying each session.

Physical and mental health are related, with one affecting the other:

 

  • Preventing, treating and managing physical health conditions also requires improving mental health and wellbeing. 

 

  • Preventing, treating and managing mental health problems requires addressing physical health. 

 

Being in good mental and physical health brings:

  • Resilience in coping with difficulties

  • Good relationships with others

  • A clearer thinking process

  • Improved decision making

  • A more optimistic outlook

  • A sense of control and self efficacy
