Attlee Youth And Community Centre (AYCC - Inclusion Service)
The Inclusion Service aims to help children with disabilities to access mainstream services within the community. Our main aims are to build friendship groups, develop confidence, promote independence and ensure our children get to have fun. After receiving the referral, the inclusion officer will arrange to meet the family and build a one page profile of the young person. This will then be passed on to service providers to ensure the young person is supported appropriately. The family will regularly be updated on the young person’s progress which will be reviewed every 6 months with support plans put into place. The inclusion officer will also work closely with service providers making sure that staffs are adequately trained to support our children the best way possible. There is a variety of different activities available for children and young people to enjoy through the Inclusion Service.
The AYCC provides open access and inclusive facilities for children, young people and the local community. Facilities include a sports hall, football and other sports pitches, an adventure playground, a catering-standard kitchen, an IT area and two meeting rooms as well as specialist play equipment. The centre operates an outreach programme to help ensure that facilities and services that local people want are provided. During term time, AYCC run regular activities for children and young people. These range from football coaching to healthy eating to arts and crafts. On Tuesdays, the centre delivers girls-only activities. During holidays, the centre runs programmes of sports, adventure play and learning open to all children and young people aged 5-19 years. AYCC have particular expertise in helping children with disabilities or special needs to fulfil their potential.
