Childwall SPLICE Project,
Wednesdays 6:00pm-7:45pm for young disabled people aged 12 – 25 years:
Splice enables young people with a range of disabilities to engage in a youth club which provides them with opportunities to make new friends, have fun, build skills and encourage independence. We aim to develop young people’s skills & talents to facilitate their progress to be as independent as possible and to gain confidence and build self-esteem through a range of fun, challenging activities which enable young people who are often isolated outside of school to build a network of friendships which will sustain them in the wider community.
We also offer the opportunity for non-disabled young people to attend to further extend the friendships that young disabled people can rely on.
Referrals into the project can be made via Fusion 0151 225 6020, parents, carers & young people can also refer themselves. Please email or phone for further information. All our sessions are supported by trained Fusion staff with a wealth of experience in supporting young disabled people.
