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.

Themed Disco every Thursday 6pm - 10pm Cost: £3 Members, Free for carers

Ambitions Disco's every week create an atmosphere where people with additional needs can socialise and relax with their carers, family or friends in a safe and friendly environment, Different theme & Live Acts each week. (All Shown in Newsletter)

AMBITIONS was formed in February 2012, it is a young group and we listen to our members and try and provide what they want in places they want to go.

Note: Ambitions run a number of activities please check their website and Facebook page

Please note Ambitions website is under construction and should be available in the next couple of weeks
