EDUCATION
 

Workshops:


All About ADHD for Children & Young People:

 

The aim of this course is to give your child a better understanding of their diagnosis with emphasis on the positive traits of ADHD and introduce basic strategies that will help with areas of their life they
may find challenging.


ADHD Anxiety and Me:

 

Anxiety can be a common hurdle for children and young people with ADHD. Building on the strategies gained on the All About ADHD course, this course gives our children and young people the means to recognise how they are affected by low level anxiety and ways to
help them manage their stress and anxiety at home, school and in the wider community.


Get a Grip for Young People:

 

A programme of training aimed at teens and young adults transitioning from secondary school, and on to college and the workplace. Focus is placed on understanding the responsibilities that come with greater independence, including relationships, managing your own finances and the need for stronger time management, planning and
organisation.


Activities


An important part of the services we offer our children and young people are our activity programmes. During the half term breaks and summer holidays we deliver a variety of activities involving interests that will help introduce new challenges, help to develop social skills, improve self- esteem, help to develop team building skills and give children and young people the opportunity to make great friends with young people across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland with similar experiences and challenges.


We offer a range of events and activities for young people to try, from various creative and expressive arts to sports and adventurous pursuits. We have seen great success over the years with our outdoor and adventurous activities, with huge interest in climbing, canoeing/kayaking, hillwalking and more recently, bush craft taster days. Young people have discovered many new talents with our arts and crafts activity days with our young people making a variety of wonderful creations with concrete, wood paint and fabrics. As we start moving back to face to face events, we hope to explore opportunities in music, dance, drama and literature as well as continue to offer the firm favourites on our programme of events.


Youth Forum


As we continue to evolve during the pandemic and find alternative solutions to engage our young

people during lockdown, our Youth Forum is a fantastic way for our young people to influence the

way we work with them. From giving their points of view on the development of some of our 

workshops and courses, the activities, events and trips we organise for their enjoyment to helping

develop funding applications for new and exciting services.


Open to our young people aged 11 upwards, the aim is to offer opportunities to meet on a regular

basis to be involved  in the planning of activities they want to do! We hope to harness their creative

and enthusiastic drive to bring the young people of Leicester,  Leicestershire, and Rutland activities

they can enjoy and make new friends.
