Voluntary Organisations based at the centre
Kith & Kids provide support to children and young people with learning disabilities and their families. Our aim is to provide learning and leisure projects for children and young people with a learning disability or autism. We do this by organising activities in the school holidays, evening and weekends, which will develop social and life skills.
We also offer information and support to parents, carers and siblings to enable them to overcome the isolation they may feel and identify and access suitable services.
Our work is supported by volunteers. We provide many opportunities for volunteering and work experience and offer training to hundreds of people throughout the year.
