It focuses on providing social, educational and development opportunities for young people through youth groups being developed in Ayrshire, Dundee, Glasgow and Lanarkshire by a team of staff and volunteers.
Past research recognises the importance of friendships and there is a strong focus on peer group support. We provide a safe environment, where activities and leisure are central to self-development in terms of practical, social and emotional skills. Awareness of rights and training strives to improve the quality of life on the journey towards adulthood.
One Giant Leap is open to young disabled people in the process of leaving school. An application process is in place to assess suitability and young people must be comfortable working in large groups. A one-month trial will be offered.
The young people lead and participate in a range of activities such as art, music and woodwork, where they build on existing skills and learn new ones e.g. horticultural skills, growing fruit, herbs and veg that they using in their cooking programme as well as to support our local foodbank with fresh produce.
Members have the opportunity to gain a recognized qualification through Sense Scotland’s ASDAN Centre of Excellence. Through creative teaching and learning we offer qualifications that explicitly grow skills for learning and life.
Members pay £5.50 per session. Please note the programme is not funded by social work as part of a care package.
