|About||Leeds Weekend Care Association is the organisation which oversees projects committed to enhancing the lives of disabled young people in Leeds|
“Leeds Weekend Care Association (Weekenders Club) is a local independent charity with one aim:-
To enhance the lives of children with disabilities and their families within the Leeds area.
Providing innovative leisure activities and top quality care, our committed and energetic staff strive to help every child develop their true potential. During their time with us the young people learn, they achieve and they enjoy, growing in confidence and independence.
But most of all we create a place where our young people have FUN while their families can relax, knowing they are in a safe, secure and happy environment.”
Our projects are:-
•Weekenders Club – a weekend play scheme for 5-18 year olds. This is held at Vine in Leeds 6. We operate 47 weekends during the year. A program of summer trips is on offer each year and of course lots of fun activities and games on Saturdays and Sundays
•Out and About Project – a social group for teenagers aged 14-18. Around 8 teenagers are supported by a staff team of 5 to go to the theatre, cinema, eat out, go bowling, play snooker – anything our young people would like to join in with – it’s their choice.
