What is Inbetweeners?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Norwood has adapted the way it is delivering its Children and Family Services and is continuing to provide support to our valued service users and Jewish families, schools and children. To find out more please get in touch by calling 020 8809 8809 and a member of our team will contact you as soon as we can.

Inbetweeners is designed for young people with moderate to profound learning disabilities and associated physical disabilities to take part in fun, social and educational activities, in a safe and stimulating environment.

Norwood’s specialist staff work closely with the children and their parents to ensure that all activities planned are suited to the interests, needs and capabilities of each child. One to one support is provided and where necessary a higher ratio of care is made available to ensure that everyone is able to participate, regardless of their level of need.

With this specialist care, the children and young people receive more attention, are more stimulated, and actively encouraged to develop and improve their life skills.

Inbetweeners also give parents and carers some respite from the daily challenge of caring for a child with a learning and/or physical disability.

 Who is Inbetweeners for?

Young adults aged 16–25 with learning disabilities.

The club takes place at the Kennedy Leigh Family Centre and that it runs every Sunday from 5.30pm – 7.30pm.
