Services for young people with disabilities

Our staff and young volunteers work with people aged 16-25 who have disabilities to build their confidence and self esteem.

We work with young people in their home communities. We design a personal development programme for each individual, empowering them to take control of their lives.

Options for Independence youth services provide:

  • volunteering opportunities
  • links to existing community resources
  • one-to-one support and access to peer mentoring
  • discussion groups and workshops on youth-related topics
  • taster sessions where young people gain life experience and participate in a range of social activities.

Funding

Funding may be obtained from local authority sources. It can also be funded directly using an independent living fund, direct payments or personal funds.
