We have a wide variety of activities available in London, too. They include:

  • People doing craftsIn-Betweeners Our recreational group for young adults with disabilities aged 16-25. The group meets fortnightly on a Sunday and also in the holidays. Our aim is to give young adults the sorts of experiences that will help them through the transition into adulthood. The young adults involved take part in planning their activities and trips. The group gives them an opportunity to socialise, acquire new skills and share experiences.
     
  • Unity. Weekly clubs and holiday playschemes that make it possible for children and young people with disabilities to meet in a fun, sociable environment. The clubs give them the chance to try activities that they may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience.

  • Birthright. A project which has already sent more than 200,000 young Jewish adults to Israel as a gift. The aim is to strengthen the sense of solidarity between Israeli and Jewish communities around the world. In March 2012, young adults with learning disabilities took part in Birthright for the very first time.
