Transitions UK - Achieve Project Phase 1
The Luton Achieve project - for young people with special needs.
This exciting project offers support to young people making the challenging transition from school or college life to life in the community, and from children to adult services.
It's aimed at young people aged 15 to 25 years who have mild to moderate learning disabilities and need friends and support to help them achieve a successful transition from school to college and into employment and the wider community.
The project specifically offers:
- two evenings of after schools’ sessions at Tokko Youth Centre, Luton
- additional weekend and evening activities
This provide each young person with around 8 to 10 hours per week of additional support - and short break respite for parents and carers.
The project is largely volunteer based and provides development clusters to retain and develop friendships and social opportunities, as well as a wide range of interesting opportunities and skills development.
Trips out and fun activities like:
Are linked to skills development around transport, money, employment, communication and independent living skills.
If you are interested in your child/young person joining the project please get in touch with Achieve Project Manager: Michelle Sharpe.
