Imago delivers two new and innovative programmes for our Short Breaks Service for disabled children and young people in Kent .

 

Imago Youth Cafes

Imago Youth Cafes run fortnightly in each district for 8 – 15 year olds.  These Cafes will run after school during term time with a number of school holiday activity days also available.   All sessions will be a fun-based pragmatic learning opportunity, focusing on building confidence, participation, life skills and independence

   

Imago Saturday Club

Imago Saturday Club, for the older age group (15 – 19 years), will offer monthly clubs as well as a number of school holiday activity days. Sessions will focus on transition and progression by providing young people with activities that utilise the facilities in the local community.
