Activenture (Federation of London Youth Clubs)
Activenture organises residential adventure weeks for young people with disabilities and special needs (ages 8-18) throughout the school holidays. During each week disabled and special needs children and young people (guests) are accompanied by a volunteer companion/helper (aged 14+). Their duties, depending on the needs of the guests, will include helping with all general day-to-day care. Volunteer adults and registered nurses supervise all our helpers. All volunteers receive free training and are accompanied by more experienced staff. Additional adults (night owls) are on duty throughout the night checking on each child hourly and dealing with any special night care required.
