TAG Youth Club for Disabled Young People celebrate the success as over 200 people attend their first Transition & Local Offer Fair.

There has not been a Transition Fair for young people with disabilities and their parents and carers for a couple of years.  Parents have been asking for the return of the fair and TAG took it upon itself to provide this much needed event.

As the planning progressed parents of younger children asked what was available for them so we chose to include the local offer which made the event suitable to many more children and families.

We welcomed over 20 organisations during the day with many saying they engaged with more families then they had a previous fairs.  Many more organisations were invited and declined to attend and we will be working to encourage these service providers for any future events.

The event focused on activities rather than speakers the afternoon had a fun and relaxed community feel about it.

We have already started to look at providing a larger and improved Transition & Local Offer Fair  in 2019.

New queuing calling system in place at TAG on Friday nights. Mainly for use for the radio station. The new system will also be used for other popular activities. Each participant will receive a device (up to 18 devices). When it’s your turn the device will vibrate, light up and beep. It’s hoped that this new system will enable young people to take part in other activities rather than waiting for a particular activity. ... See MoreSee Less

We’re continuing to use technology to improve the way we work. This Friday we will be introducing a new call button system.

If you arrive late you will be able to press a button and it will page a member of staff who will make their way to welcome desk. Another button is available for when the tuck shop is closed and you wish to purchase a drink or snack.
