Alice on soft playOur club for 12-18 year olds runs at The Yard Edinburgh on Mondays from 5.45 to 8.15pmOur playworker Alice leads this club.

Our teen clubs build on the adventure play origins of our playground, offering risk and challenge alongside fun, friendship, new experiences, and opportunities to develop independence and social skills.

Arts and crafts, drumming and movie nights happen at The Yard, while trips out vary from climbing at Alien Rock, to  trips to Portobello to visit the beach and arcades. Both collaborative and solitary play are popular in this club, with a mixture of personalities enjoying the service.

For young people dealing not only with adolescence but also their disability, our youth clubs offer a valued route away from the risks of social exclusion, and over-reliance on support from parents and carers, for whom these clubs are also a welcome source of respite.

This club is for The Yard members, who can self-travel or be dropped off and attend independently.

We are currently reviewing our waiting list system for clubs, so we are not adding any new names at the moment. We will provide an update on our waiting list process in April 2018.
