Description

Romsey Mill’s Aspire Programme runs youth clubs in Cambridge City and Cambourne for young people with autistic spectrum conditions who are in mainstream schools. The weekly youth clubs create a social space for members to interact at a level with which they are comfortable.

A high ratio of support is offered from committed volunteers. Young people go to relax and be themselves, and to do things that they enjoy. There is no pressure to socialise, but members often find they enjoy sharing activities, such as board games, pool, table tennis, lego, crafts or cooking, with others who have similar interests and difficulties. There are also groups specifically for girls with autistic spectrum conditions.

Eligibility

Young people in Cambridge City and Cambourne who have been diagnosed with high-functioning autistic spectrum conditions, including Asperger Syndrome, and who are in mainstream education. Families assessed as eligible for early help funding (formerly short breaks funding) or self directed support can use this to attend the club.

Referral

Referral is usually through your Disabled Children's Early Help co-ordinator or through a social care assessment. For more information, please contact Romsey Mill on 01223 521 270 or Cambridgeshire County Council's Disabled Children's Early Help team on 01480 379 800.
