The Special Needs Group, also known as Streatham Wednesday Group (SWG), are young people (ages 13 – 30) with special needs who get together once a week to take part in a tailored programme of interests and activities. The programme is designed to develop confidence and teach social and life skills.
The programme was developed through interaction with the young people and our qualified youth worker, assistants and volunteer. Members do cookery classes, arts and crafts and take part in discussions and workshops. They also go for meals, take part in quizzes, play pool, table tennis and other social activities. SWG members also participate in our residential week, in which we take the majority of the Youth Centre on an adventure holiday outside of London. Because of the accessibility needs of the young people, the centre provides door to door pickup and drop off.
