B&NES 18+ group

The 18+ group was started for disabled young people over 18 when they left our other groups. Young people at the group are aged 19-28. The group meets 2 Friday evenings a month, once to play skittles and once to go out.

The aim of the group is to support young people who would like a social life on Friday evenings and would otherwise be isolated. Young people need to be safe in a group setting, as we are unable to offer 1:1 support.

The going out sessions are chosen by group members every 6 months, popular choices include meals out, theatre and cinema trips, gym and swimming sessions, train trips and canal walks.

Group members enjoy alcoholic drinks during these sessions, but have agreed a 2 drink limit.
