Teenage Youth Club

Teenage Club is currently open.

Following the release of the Government’s guidance on Protective measures for out-of-school settings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Teenage Club has reopened. We have made a number of changes to ACCT Clubs in response to Covid-19. To protect our community, everyone attending ACCT clubs must maintain good hygiene, hand washing and social distancing.

Please note that our clubs may be changed regularly in line with Government guidance changes as we progress through this pandemic. We recommend that parents and carers keep up-to-date with the latest Government guidance. Parents have a responsibility to make sure they and their children know what to expect when attending ACCT Clubs, and understand the importance of good hygiene, hand washing and social distancing.

We will also continue to have activities available online – weekly Acctivate and Teenage Club Minecraft, weekly Dungeons and Dragons via Zoom and fortnightly Parents’ Meetings via Zoom.

Please get in touch if you are interested in attending any of these sessions.

We are aware that lots of our families are already isolated and self isolating is going to extend that further, along with the increased anxiety that many of us are feeling. We are asking all of you to please reach out to us if you need support and we will do all that we can to help.

Kind Regards,
The ACCT Team

The Teenage Youth Club takes place weekly on Wednesdays at St Mary’s Pavilion on Bramall Lane unless otherwise stated. We are not currently able to offer a parent carer room as we have in the past. Once restrictions ease, we hope to reinstate this space with hot drinks where parent-carers can meet to chat and support each other.

ACCT’s Teenage Youth Club is open to autistic teenagers.  Activities include arts and crafts, games,  music, a computer suite, outdoor space for sports and games, and space to sit and chat.  

Pre-booking is essential as places are limited contact Nicola on 07527 824034 or email nicola.hough@acctsheffield.org.uk to book. A waiting list is operational should the club be full.

The group meets on Wednesdays between 7.00pm and 9.00pm. Sessions run every Wednesday apart from two weeks over Christmas. If, for unforeseen circumstances, the club is ever cancelled then members will be notified.

Teenage Club is held at St Mary’s Pavilion, Bramall Lane, Sheffield unless otherwise stated.

Please be aware that Teenage Club is now a commissioned SCC Short Breaks club. As such, we are no longer able to accept self referrals for places – these are now allocated by Sheffield City Council. For more information or to request referral, please contact the Early Help and Prevention Team (SNIPs) on 0114 2930218.
