About Us

The DASH club is an after school club for young people aged 11-18 with complex needs (learning, physical, sensory or behaviourial difficulties).

The Club offers a wide range of activities designed to promote health, well-being, social skills and self confidence among young people with disabilities.

The Dash Club runs 3 sessions per week from 3.30pm to 5.30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during school term. At the end of each session, the young people are escorted home by trained DASH Club staff in local community transport provided by NATA (North Area Transport Association). We also run holiday programmes during Easter and Summer as well as residential stays during October week when funding is available.
