TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People delivers a programme of personal, social and educational opportunities to young people with disabilities or additional needs. We aim to empower and optimise the potential of those who have a disability between the ages of 15 and 25 who either live, learn or earn in the Royal Borough of Kingston , the London Borough of Richmond or where there is a identified need .
Our core work is about enabling young people to participate in experiences – planned or unplanned – and for them to be able to reflect on how that experience has changed them. Our youth workers enable and facilitate young people’s ability to achieve self awareness, greater self esteem, confidence and understanding of the wider community and how it impacts on their lives.
We work,at both the youth centre and in the local community; youth workers support young people through informal and experimental learning in order to gain knowledge, skills, make informed choices and to assist in their personal development.
We treat everyone fairly and equally as individuals and aim to provide young people with a safe, caring, well equipped environment which is accessible to those who wish to attend, giving them the opportunity to participate in personal and social development activities including arts, drama, music and sport.
We rely entirely on grants, fundraising and donations to continue our work with young people . As ever we are grateful to the many individuals and organisations that gave us grants, donations and support this year. We thank them all and recognise the support we’ve received from:
