Who is eligible to be a member? / How do I get involved?
All children/young adults between the ages of 13-18 who self-define as being disabled are eligible to attend our events as members. Before attending, you must first sign up for our database and complete an application form. See here for more information.
How accessible are the events for those with disabilities?
We endeavour to make all our events accessible for all our members. If you have any concerns, please do get in touch and we will do our very best to cater for your needs.
Where are the events held?
Most of our events are held in the local area around Nottingham. When we run exciting events further afield, we provide transport from University Park campus.
When do the events occur?
Our events usually take place on Sunday afternoons every two weeks during term-time. If you sign up for our mailing list, we will let you know just as soon as registration for our next event opens!
How will I be informed about upcoming events?
The easiest way to stay invovled about upcoming events is to sign up for our mailing list. If you do not have access to email, please get in touch and we will arrange a suitable alternative means of communication - we'd hate for you to miss out!
What costs are involved?
We're intent on running unique, exciting and fun events for as many people as possible, but they're not cheap! All our events are funded by grants and generous donations. As such, we ask parents for a nominal donation towards the cost of the event. We also normally ask you to provide your child with a packed lunch for the event.
However, we would never want anyone to miss out for financial reasons, so if you're not in a position to give a donation, please don't worry.
What level of care is provided?
Our trained volunteers provide 1:1 care for all our members. As young adults themselves, they are able to act not just as a carer, but as a friend, giving you peace of mind in the knowledge that not only is your child having an amazing time, but they are also being very well looked after!
How will you use and protect the personal data I share with you?
We treat your personal data as we would treat our own and have a comprehensive data protection policy detailing exactly how we do this, which you may read here. You may request a copy of the personal data we hold on you/your child at any time by contacting us here.
What is your Safeguarding policy?
The safety and welfare of our Members is our top priority. All volunteers are provided with safeguarding training and are DBS checked. You can find our full safeguarding policy here.
