The Trust for Developing Communities in Partnership with small voluntary run Charity, Look Sussex, support weekly sessions for young people, who are visually impaired/blind to access fun and interactive youth sessions.
Look Sussex was established in 1992 and to date has supported over 250 families across Sussex offering access to support, friendship and advice as well as regular coffee mornings, youth activities and trips out.
Every Wednesday during term-time we hold youth sessions in the 67 Centre 5.30-7pm by Moulsecoomb Leisure Centre, Hodshrove Lane, BN2 4RW just opposite the Health Centre. We are keen to grow our membership and offer these great opportunities to young people locally. All the sessions are FREE.
The young people plan their activities with the youth workers and these can range from weekly cookery or craft-making activities through to silent discos, singing, messy play and quiz nights. Georgina often posts highlights of the sessions on facebook. We hope that as the membership grows, we can fundraise for trips out and more interactive resources like a set of musical instruments and braille balls for the pool table.
If you would like more information do get in touch with TDC, [email protected] or alternatively contact Look Sussex, Tara Dutton on [email protected] or call 07703 434119 or just drop into one of the sessions! If you know any families who may benefit from the sessions (we welcome parents, carers and siblings to stay for a cuppa and chat) everyone is very welcome. And if you are interested in maybe volunteering in your community and this sounds like a group you would like to help grow, let me know!
