Event description: “Me & You” is a Lottery funded project for disabled and special needs young people during their transition years.
Lottery funding will help us address the lack of opportunities for young people and the long term impact on their health and wellbeing .

We plan to build the skills, confidence and esteem of young physically disabled and special needs people by providing positive outdoor activities in a ‘green-blue’ environment.

The project aims are to:-

  • Help young people during the transition period of their lives from full time education to adult life by exploring their options. They may have found the constraints of the classroom difficult to cope with, making the thought of further education scary.
  • Use a mix of outdoor and personal skills activities to build self confidence and esteem of beneficiaries.
  • Give young people the opportunity to work in a team, take leadership roles and share skills to achieve shared goals in a positive environment .
  • Give young people the opportunity to develop personal and practical skills using skilled support staff and volunteers to encourage them to try new activities and gain recognition of what they can achieve.

Summer Dates this year are:

  • 23rd July
  • 30th July
  • 6th August
  • 13th August
  • 20th August
  • 27th August
