At Markfield we have youth schemes in the holidays and evening clubs where disabled and non-disabled young people can socialise.
Young people help decide what happens on the youth clubs and choose things like music, art, cooking, dance, sport, trips out. We have clubs for adults with learning disabilities, autism or Aspergers Syndrome. These sessions provide a range of self-chosen activities such as arts, music, relaxation and drama. Group members explore and develop their skills and interests in supportive and inclusive sessions.
