We are here to support young people and their families as much as we can. Contact us and we can chat through support options or suggest other organisations or avenues which might best suit your child.
What is ZAP group and is my child eligible?
ZAP group is a youth club for young people with additional support needs. The group is kept small to ensure that staff can provide the best possible support and experiences for those attending. Age ranges are mixed as are the members abilities and interests. We do not offer personal care. Young people will be offered a trial to ensure that the group fits them and their needs.
