Spectrum Youth Group is aimed at young people aged 14-25 who have special needs. These can be categorised as physical,emotional,learning disabilities, people on the Autistic spectrum or simply young people who need a more supportive and inclusive social group. We are a group of volunteer parents and professionals who are helping to fill the gap.
Our aim is to create opportunities for our young people with disabilities to develop friendships and reduce social isolation that many experience.
From personal experience we believe there is a small army of young adults out there who spend a significant amount of their leisure time alone with few or no appropriate social opportunities.
Spectrum will be open to all young people who have a need.
