Events for disabled

Have your say

A SERIES of social evenings for young people with disabilities will be restarting next week.

The charity Optua has another year’s funding from Suffolk County Council’s Activities Unlimited Service towards its Teaming Up Project which helps 14- to 25-year-olds with disabilities or additional needs to meet up for evenings out and occasional day trips.

The charity says the aim of Teaming Up is to give young disabled people the opportunity to gain more independence, confidence, self-esteem and vital social skills, whilst taking part in everyday fun leisure activities.

The evening activities will start next Tuesday and be run every fortnight from 6.30pm to 9pm.

For more information about the new activities in 2012-2013, contact Teaming Up co-ordinator Karl Daniels on 01473 836770 or email tup@optua.org.uk
