What is Creative Hang Out?

Our Creative Hang Outs are a series of fun, engaging sessions for young adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. If you’re aged 18 to 25 and live in Halton you can join us to develop your creative skills while socialising with friends old and new. 

Thanks to Halton Borough Council and NHS England for funding the project. You can read more about Creative Hang Outs on our project page here.

What will happen at the sessions? 

At Creative Hang Out you will have an opportunity to meet like-minded people for a chat and a bit of fun in a supportive, positive space. 

At each session you will have the opportunity to try a whole host of creative activities; ranging from animation, coding and graphic design through to crafting and electronics. We want you and the rest of the group to help us shape what activities you’ll do in the five sessions. So come along and tell us what you’re interested in, we’ll get you involved in planning how we fit it into the programme. 

No prior experience is needed to take part in any activity and all equipment will be provided by us. We’ve got some friendly tutors who are experts in digital arts and technology to help you along the way.
