Breakaway Group in Beeston

The Breakaway programme is open to 14-25 year olds with learning disabilities and autism. We use music, art, dance and drama, as well as other creative expressive arts, to increase the young people’s independence, communication, resilience and leadership skills as well as increasing their emotional literacy. We do this by exploring various topics such as the right to vote, loneliness and isolation, social action, their right to work as a disabled young person and freedom & rebellion. This leads to opportunities to share their creative pieces at community events and internal showcases.

The group is based at Middle Street Resource Centre, in Beeston, every Wednesday during term time. Arrival is between 3.30 and 4, with the group finishing at 6pm. The group is free to attend and there are free sandwiches on arrival and free cold refreshments throughout the session.

Contact Ella for more information.
