Story

TAG Youth Club is a service that supports young people who have a disability between the ages of 15 and 25. TAG currently provides 93 young people with fun and educational activities and their families receive a weekly short break.

The youth club provides a safe, caring, well equipped environment which is accessible to all young people who wish to attend. Giving them the opportunity to participate in personal and social development activities including arts, drama, music and sport.

A team of trained, experienced youth workers provide supervised activities at both the youth centre and in the community; promoting experiential learning in order to gain knowledge, skills, make informal choices and to assist in their personal development. For some young people this is the only supported social event of their week.

TAG Youth Club was established in November 2000 by a group of parents and young people with the help of the local authority. Since the Club was founded we have received an annual grant from Kingston Council to cover core costs. This funding ends at the end of September 2016 and unfortunately will not continue! With TAG's current reserve money the club can only survive until Christmas.

We are desperate to continue this invaluable service for our young people's needs and require help to ensure we can continue our service whilst we try to apply for permanent funding. Your donations will help to pay for activities, outings, resources and youth workers and give us more time to keep the club running past this fast approaching deadline!

Key Facts
-There are currently 337 young people aged between 15 & 19 living in the Royal Borough of Kingston, and 491 in Richmond, with a statement or EHCPS.

-Within the next 3 years, 243 young people living in Kingston and 169 young people living in the London Borough of Richmond, will be eligible to join the Club

Any donation will mean a great deal to all involved at TAG. Thank you very much.
