Our clubs are not currently running due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our club waiting list remains closed since transitions could not continue as usual during 2020. We will contact all our members during the summer holidays to let you know about our plans for youth clubs after this time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our club for 18-25 year olds runs at The Yard Edinburgh on Saturdays from 5.45 to 8.15pm.

Our Saturday evening club is for young people experiencing the transition to adulthood. It provides a safe, relaxing environment where young people can be themselves and develop independence, with the support of trained and empathic staff.

The Yard becomes a focal point for friendships that grow bigger than the confines of our playground. Young people, parents and carers all tell us about increased confidence and interests that grow out of attending this club.

This group are becoming more independent; there are some trips out, which vary from dinner out, to nights at the bingo and shows at the Fringe. At The Yard, this club enjoys activities such as boccia, movie nights and pottery making.

This club is for The Yard members aged 18-25, who are able to self-travel or be dropped off, and attend independently. Once a young person has successfully transitioned into this club, they can no longer attend our family sessions.

All of our youth clubs are currently full and we have a long waiting list. A reduction in local services for disabled young people has contributed to a great increase in demand for places in our clubs. In order to avoid disappointment, we have taken the decision to close our club waiting list. Based on the predicted number of transitions through our clubs, our waiting list will remain closed for the foreseeable future, until such time as it becomes manageable. We will continue to review this decision quarterly and keep our members and families who have expressed interest updated with any changes.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
