The Generations Club is a leisure club for young people with a learning disability and autism, who are in their final year at school or have just left school. The purpose of the club is to support these young people to participate in community activities and develop their independent living skills. The club takes place weekly on Saturdays all year and includes the preparation of a health lunch. The Generations Club is a service for children/young people aged between 16-24 years with a moderate learning disability and autism living in the London Borough of Merton, while also providing a meaningful short break for their family carers.
There are 15 places at the club.
The Squad runs Thursday night clubs for people with learning disabilities and is based in Wimbledon.
Our club nights are fun-packed and educational and our members enjoy socialising with their friends whilst also trying out new experiences.
The club is split into 2 age groups: the 'juniors' club is for under 25s and our 'vets' clubs is for over 25s. The clubs are run separately and both have their own programme of age-appropriate activities.
Team Motivation is a service for people aged over 16 living with a disability or mental illness who need a little help getting active and involved in their local area. After talking to you and your family, you will be buddied up with a Team Motivator (TM) who shares similar interests and likes similar activities. TMs are trained volunteers who are friendly, encouraging, open minded and reliable. You will attend a first meeting with the Team Motivator, the YMCA LSW Inclusive Lives Co-ordinator and your family or carer. This is a great chance to meet and see if they are a good match.
Your Team Motivator will show you what activities are on in the area, enjoy each others company, provide support on public transport and try new activities with you.
