The DASH Club fulfills an important function in the daily lives of our service users:  young people with additional support needs. It enables them to socialise with their friends, and offers access to sport, games, music, art and drama sessions under the tutelage of trained specialists. Through these diverse activities our young people are encouraged to reach their full potential whilst having a good time.

Services For 11-18 Year Olds


Tuesdays is our Active Session held at Ashton School and the young people go swimming or play sport/games. If the weather is good we often go for a walk round Hogganfield Loch.


On a Wednesday we have our interactive drama session at Beatroute Arts Centre. The session is led by a specialist facilitator who helps the young people develop their self-confidence and social skills through games and story telling.


Thursday is our Chill-Out Session, where we provide a quiet environment with a choice of activities including Rebound Therapy, aromatherapy and a sensory room.

A small group also goes to the Beatroute Arts Centre for a music session facilitated by a music teacher provided by our partner Beatroute.
