Our Barn Our Futures Programme
The Programme is a FREE 15 week Personal Development course for young people aged 16-35 who have a disability or Autism. Teams usually consist of about 6 members.
It is a programme designed to give young people experiences that they can use to reflect upon and improve their employability skills, gaining social and practical skills in the process.
We put a large emphasis on leading a healthy lifestyle through, exercise and positive food choices.
The Our Futures programme aims to re-engage young people, helping them to focus and think about their futures.
It helps to build self-esteem, confidence and motivation by working as a team and with their local community. It’s all about getting young people out and about, facing challenges, learning new skills and realising their potential.
