The Youth Development Project is tailor-made programme for anyone aged 13-25 with a learning disability who lives or goes to school in the Hammersmith and Fulham area. The project focuses on skills development, self-advocacy and independent living as well as social inclusion and fun activities. It begins this summer with a six week programme full of exciting activities and days out. The project will continue into term time with educational workshops which will encourage self and skills development. We also have a steering group, made up of young people to help improve and guide our service. The group meets once a month and anyone is welcome to join to have their say.
