Cambridge House-Disabled People’s Empowerment Programmes

Art

We run a number of educational arts-based projects for children, young people and adults with disabilities and special educational needs.

Our creative educational activities enable our learners to develop their skills and knowledge in an enjoyable way. We also provide our learners with invaluable opportunities for socialising; for many of our students, the club is the main place they can enjoy friendship and community.

Activities are diverse, from painting, poetry and drama to cooking and games. By supporting learners to develop their independent living skills, we enable them to live their lives to the full.

Sport

We provide weekly opportunities for young people with learning and/or physical disabilities aged 14-25 within Southwark to participate in two sports; trampolining (rebound therapy) and swimming (hydrotherapy).

These sports enable individuals with more profound and multiple learning and/or physical disabilities to experience weightlessness and improve muscle tone by practicing rhythmic, three-dimensional movements. Our long term aim is improve the psychological health and emotional well-being of our young people.

Adults and Young People with Special Educational Needs or Disabilities.
