Exciting Opportunity for Young Disabled People and Their Carers in Plymouth

Young disabled people in Plymouth will get a fantastic new opportunity this Summer thanks to Plymouth Argyle Community Trust. The Trust are delivering special short break sessions catered to young people with a disability. As well as giving young people the chance to socialise whilst improving upon their skills, the sessions will also give carers a break from their daily work.

Every Monday and Tuesday from 9am – Midday, Argyle’s Short Breaks will involve fun-filled football sessions, stadium tours, smoothie making, table tennis, wii fit activities, games consoles and many more fun activities.

Working closely in partnership with Plymouth City Council, the Trust aims to give carers respite but to also offer new opportunities to young people they may never have experienced in the past.

Each day sees the youngsters taking part in fun-filled sport sessions, aimed at improving their basic skills whilst making new friends. The courses, full of mini-games and technique workshops, sees each participant work with Argyle coaches, giving them a unique experience of what it is like to be a professional ‘Pilgrim’.

To compliment practical sport sessions, each participant takes part in exciting workshops aimed at improving their understanding of both the game, as well as the importance of leading a healthy, active lifestyle. Skills that will be introduced include smoothie making classes, kit design and basic first aid tips.
