Project Overview

Thanks to funding from Halton Borough Council and NHS England we are launching our Creative Hang Out project. We’ll deliver a series of FREE creative workshops for young adults (aged 18-25) from Halton who have learning disabilities and/or autism. 

The focus of these sessions is to enhance the emotional wellbeing of the young adults through a range of fun, digital and creative activities and to provide opportunities to socialise with friends old and new.

The past few years have been tough for everyone, but for those who may have difficulties socialising and struggle with uncertainty in their lives the pandemic has been especially challenging.

It is more important than ever that young adults with additional needs in our community have opportunities to meet their peers, be involved in positive experiences and have access to a variety of creative ways in which to express themselves. 

Who can get involved?

We are looking for young adults from Halton aged 18-25, who have autism or learning disabilities who would like to get involved in digital and creative activities in a supportive, social environment.

There are a maximum of 10 places available for participants on this project.
