This programme is not currently running with covid.

The inclusion project at the Playtrail recruits young people aged (16-18 years old) to act as buddies for young people with disabilities. Buddies will have the opportunity to participate in a 8 week tailored training programme, which will empower them with the skills and knowledge to provide support to the young people with disabilities to get involved in different programmes/events across the city.

Benefits to buddying:

  • Accredited training
  • Achieve knowledge and experience of working in the field of learning disability
  • Develop new skills and meet new friends
  • Build confidence and self-esteem
  • Recognition of time and volunteering hours
  • Support/guidance from trained staff
