Inclusion / Additional Needs (SEND)

Ages 8-25

Inclusion / Additional Needs (SEND)

Here at Manchester Youth Zone, we value all our members and do our best to ensure that all of our young people are able to take part in all of our activities. Our staff work with young people with additional needs/ disabilities to create an environment where they feel safe, included in all activities.

Our Sunday sessions from 12pm-3pm cater for young people with additional needs and disabilities up to 25 years old.

Our Approach:

     – Carrying out a structured new member’s meeting to discuss young people’s level of support and how we manage them,

     –  Ensuring support information is available for the staff team,

     –  Providing inclusive and accessible activities, such as sensory play, arts & crafts, wheelchair basketball, sensory room, and                    much more

     –  Provide staff with the necessary skill sets to support those young people when attending our sessions and training on how to             adapt activities.

Levels of support:-

     –  We are unable to offer 1-2-1 support, including personal care etc

     –  We do allow young people t0 be supported by external support workers/carers.

     –  We ask a full DBS is provided and our policies are adhered too.
