Transitions UK - Achieve Project Phase 2

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:

PHASE 2

  • evening after college session at High Town Baptist Church, Luton
  • support into employment related activities
  • individual support and cluster support during the week
  • additional weekend and evening activities

These 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:

  • bowling
  • swimming
  • camping

These are linked to skills development around transport, money, employment, communication and independent living skills.
