Supporting young people - Play Our Way

Play Our Way is a Children in Need funded project which supports young people to take part in a range of activities, from kayaking and surfing to archery and football.

Play Our Way staff and ambassadors work with providers, like leisure centres and outdoor activity centres, to help make them more accessible for people with a learning disability. 

The project also aims to develop the ambassadors themselves, by helping improve their confidence; by promoting teamwork and supporting them to build meaningful friendships.

The project is currently working in Merthyr Tydfil.
