how we can help your child have fun

Remember how important making new friends, discovering new hobbies and having your own independence were in your younger days? Now you’re watching your own child go through those stages.

With a disability, it can be hard to do things others take for granted. That’s why we’re here to help.

Our team of young volunteers provides structured “buddying” to help your child join in, develop self-confidence and learn new social skills. We also organise a range of group activities – the perfect opportunity for making new friends.

Simply take a look at the links to see what’s available, and if there’s something your child is interested in, you can contact us by phone, email or by using the online registration form. One of our team will meet you to see how we can help. Please note: if your child needs personal care during activities, you’ll need to provide a carer.

To register a young person with Friends for Leisure, please phone or email the office, or use our registration form.
