Description

AMBITIONS is an independent and self-funding not-for-profit community group primarily staffed by volunteers that provides both social activities (Discos, social club, sports activities etc.) and improving skills activities (reading, IT, money recognition etc.) to young adults with learning and physical disabilities.

It was originally started by Jonathan Griffiths-Barnes and a few volunteers who organised THEMED DISCOs once every fortnight at a town centre pub because young people with physical and learning difficulties wanted to socialise and do activities in ordinary places, just as most members of the community would be doing. Members come with carers, family and friends integrating both able bodied and those with disabilities.

Social Club includes a 2 course Lunch, refreshments throughout the day, variety of activities including:

  • Arts & Crafts
  • Card Bingo
  • Game Consoles (Wii, Play Station)
  • Pool Table
  • Jewellery making
  • Preparing food

There is so much more!

Ambitions run a number of activities so please check the website and  Facebook page.
