Ambitions (Fun, Inclusion, Choice)

Ambitions is an independent and self-funding not for profit community group primarily staffed by volunteers that provides both social activities (discos, social club, sports activities) and improving skills activities (reading, IT skills) recognition to young adults with learning and physical disabilities.

Young people with physical and learning difficulties wanted to socialise and do activities in ordinary places, just as most members of the community would be doing. Members come with carers, family and friends integrating both able bodied and those with disabilities.
