Navigating social situations can be particularly hard when you have ADHD, and we are passionate about making sure that children and young people have the opportunity to have fun, develop relationships and feel valued and included just like their counterparts.
We Provide Youth Groups for children and young people between the ages of 5-18 who have been diagnosed with ADHD. Each session costs £8.00 and the annual admin fee is £20.00 and must be paid when joining and then every April. In these groups the children and young people have access to Gaming PCs, iPads, and a Variety of Gaming Consoles. We also provide a ‘Chill Out Area’ for our young people to relax where they can watch a DVD, Play a boardgame, read a book or just chat with their friends if they feel they need to. Children and young people will also have access to an art room full of creative supplies and a sports area to play active games in.
We occasionally invite visitors to the youth groups that have included Maryfield Community Police Team (breaking down barriers and both the police and the children learning about each other), Scarlett Erskine Jewellery, BetterGen (boxing and exercising), and in the past we have had photography and cooking sessions as well.
Once our children and young people are settled into the group, we also offer activity weeks during the school holidays for an additional cost.
If you have been notified that your young person has a space at our youth group, please complete our enrolment form that is linked to the bottom of this page.
