Teenage Youth Club

Following the Government’s guidance, ACCT has made the decision to cancel all in-person activities until further notice.

We want to reassure members that ACCT will still be running throughout this unprecedented and uncertain time to offer you all support. We are in the process of moving activities online – see our page on our Minecraft Club, which will take place at the same time as our usual weekly ACCTivate and Teenage Club.

We have lots of ideas to move support online and will be working hard in the coming days to set this up. We will be available via email and the club mobile, and will be sending out regular emails and posting on social media to keep you connected.

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 Pavillion on Bramall Lane unless otherwise stated. In addition, we have a parent carer room with hot drinks where adults can meet to chat and support each other.

 

This is for teenagers with Asperger’s syndrome and High Functioning Autism.  Activities include arts and crafts and a computer suite.  Social skills training sessions will also be offered when available.  Our aim is for the teenagers to have fun, ‘chill out and make new friends’.  Trips out will be organised when funding is available and ACCT has details of  medical and other needs of Teenage members to ensure their safety.

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 Pavillion, Bramall Lane, Sheffield unless otherwise stated.
