SLCo’s (The Speech Language Communication Company) Edinburgh Chill Youth Club will support 16-25 year olds with lifelong speech, language and/or communication difficulties.
There will be a specific focus on the young people/young adults building connections and friendships with each other as well as improving social confidence, resilience and self-esteem.
Many young people feel isolated due to their communication difficulties and require support for developing independence and their social skills. Therefore, it is their intention to provide a trusted and safe space where they can enjoy a wide range of fun activities which have been driven by their input and interests.
Additionally, through consultation with the young people involved they envisage holding some specialist ‘Workshops’ as part of the Youth Club sessions and these would be delivered by their partners across the City.
