Who is the service for?Disabled young people age 11-17 years. Young people are supported to take responsibility for themselves, which includes cooking, shopping and looking after their own possessions. Throughout the weekend young people are supported and provided with 24 hour care by highlighly trained and dedicated staff.

When are the sessions?
Currently they are four weekends organised per year.
