Living with a long-term condition limits the chances young people have to build friendships and relationships outside of school or their immediate circle of support.
Hub Clubs creates opportunities to meet and engage with ‘likeminded’ peers who share similar life challenges. It allows young people to spend time away from their family to be themselves and to make the important connections that will develop into lasting social networks.
The groups are run by trained and skilled staff, but are very much shaped
by the young people who attend them. The focus is on creating an environment of fun, allowing those who attend to build their social skills with people they can trust.
Hub Clubs include:
- Weekend clubs and events
- Youth Clubs
- Holiday Clubs
- After school Clubs
- Young Adult Social Groups
- Special events throughout the year
Groups and clubs can be paid for privately or with your personal budget. Some groups are funded by the local authority and can be accessed by referral from your lead professional.
