Rainbow Flyers Youth Club was set up in September 2015 at Ruskington Youth Centre, Ruskington, Lincolnshire. Rainbow Flyers is dedicated to my son Thomas who has autism, an inspiration to us all, we are as a family forever learning about how we are all unique and special in many ways.
After lots of enquiries about youths and young adults with special needs and disabilities having their own special youth club, I have finally set up a youth club running every Sunday 3-5pm at Ruskington Youth Centre. The club is now from 7 years of age to 25 years of age.
My idea is that we all have a safe place to interact, socialise and it is vital that parents and carers must attend for their child's safety and well-being.
The Youth Centre has great amenities so ideas such as preparing a small meal, helping with Tuck Shop, having your haircut or reflexology are just a few of the many ideas I have. If your child/young person just wants to play pool, Wii, Xbox, art and craft, play outside or just watch the TV that is absolutely fine, its all about what the child/young person wants. I have also held events such as Halloween, Christmas, Easter parties as well as themed days such as art and crafts or outside games such as netball/football or just making tents.
This club is for us all to enjoy the amenities and facilities we are lucky to have so please come along!
Youths £2 and parents etc and siblings are free, the first meeting will be free to you all to wander around and pass over any ideas or questions you may have.
Thank you Karen Kenward
A Youth Club with a difference! Where children and young adults can interact if they wish or play alone. A safe secure and friendly environment with the supervision of their parents. A club designed to understand disabilities and to support each other. A club that understands special needs, where the children and young adults feel at ease with their disabilities and support each other. A place to grow, play, learn and socially interact without any discomfort. Our Rainbow signifies the spectrum and the hummingbirds are our vulnerable children who are learning to fly.
