Activities We Run

We have three different groups at PALS:

  • Fun Factory
  • PALS Youth Club
  • Young Adults Group

You can find out more about the types of activities each group take part in below.

Fun Factory

For children aged between 5-11, we have the Fun Factory club, which meets every Tuesday afternoon. Activities for this group include craft, reptile handling, sausage making, sensory activities, indoor games and sports to name just a few!

PALS Youth Club (PYC)

When our members reach 12, they graduate to PYC. The club meets on alternate Friday nights and provides everyone with a chance to relax and meet up with friends. We provide a wide range of activities including sports, drama, cooking, ice skating and fun outings.

Young Adults Group – Ages 18 – 25 years

This group meets monthly and focuses on developing independence and social skills in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.  Activities include sno-tubing, meals out, volleyball, indoor skydiving, as well as day trips and overnight experiences.

The activities provided give children and young people the opportunity to develop socially, but also give parents a well earned break and time with other members of the family. Members are left in the capable hands of our team.

We are not a respite service, but we are here for your child to make friends and have fun!

Parents are expected to provide transport for their child to activities.
