College’s out Bedford and District cerebral Palsy Society

COLLEGE’S OUT runs for two weeks during the summer at The University of Bedfordshire for young people aged 18-25 years to come and meet friends in a safe and fun packed environment. Times are 9.30 am – 3.30pm.

College’s Out has exciting activities that help young people learn new life skills and have new experiences to help build self-confidence and prepare for adulthood and independence. Every young person is encouraged to think about and work towards achieving their aspirations.

The weeks typically have a theme which is chosen to meet the interests of the young people attending. In 2016 the first week was dedicated to sports, where specialist coaches enabled young people to try a range of sports adapted so that everyone could join in. The second week was dedicated to the arts where young people were able to express themselves creating music, costumes, instruments and art for a carnival.

Safeguarding is taken very seriously. Each young person will have a volunteer or member of staff available if needed and parents are not required to stay. All staff and volunteers are trained to meet the basic needs of the young people for example; safeguarding and epilepsy awareness. Paid staff are also trained to provide first aid, personal care, tube feeds and administration of medication and emergency medication and wherever possible any other requirement of the young person.
