The Youth Development Project is tailor-made programme for anyone aged 13-25 with a learning disability or autism who lives or goes to school/college in the Hammersmith and Fulham area. The project focuses on skills development, self-advocacy, independent living and social inclusion.

Currently, an Art Group runs every Wednesday and a Drama Group every Thursday both from 5pm-6.30pm and free of charge (see flyers for details).

Kirstin also provides fun, interactive life skills workshops for local schools and colleges. (booklet attached with details).

Every half-term and holiday there is an activity programme for young people to have fun and socialise! Programmes are released in advance of each school holiday.

If you would like to be involved in any of the programmes or activities then please contact Kirstin on
