Our youth groups offer varied activities for young people that are often planned by the attendees themselves and help them develop their social and life skills. Winchester Youth services enable young people with mild additional needs to relax, have fun and try new things. They offer two services - Thumbs up and 18up. 


How does the service work?

Thumbs Up is a youth group that is led by the young people that attend. At the start of each term the young people put together a planner of activities they would like to do including onsite activities as well as trips to the local leisure centre, bowling alley and cinema.  We also offer days out during the schools holidays - these are typically bigger trips that include theme parks, theatre trips and trips to London. Please note as we don't have many staff that work on this, we can't offer 1:1 support. 

18up meets and visits various places, past trips have included the Harry Potter studios, London, cinema and bowling and trips to the theatre. Young people who attend this session must be aged between 18 and 25 years old and have completed relevant paper work before they attend.
