Quick update on how our recycling project is going (mainly the cardboard birds), who knew you could make such lovely things out of old scraps. The work will feature in our upcoming exhibition in Redditch, fronted by our Art Club with help from artist Rich Inwood – more details will follow in the next few months when we have created even more masterpieces and secured a venue.

Aspergers friendly group games, your ideas needed!

Our Spectrum Club, a youth group for young people with Aspergers is growing in numbers and our younger group ( aged 10-15) are stuggling with the concept of group games. One game of Pictionary later and we were left puzzled and mentally exhausted through trying to make a success of the game. We are persistent though and are determined to try a new game every session with the aim of improving their social skills within group settings.

Introducing our WIG group, not to be confused with WAG’s!

Lights, camera, action!

On Friday we transformed our lounge room into a film set to record interviews with young people for our Health Improvement Fund short films. We are looking to document young peoples opinions on sexual health and relationships in the digital story format. Chris Bradley the film maker was excellent as always and we can’t wait to see the edited versions.

The final products will be shown in schools and youth establishments as an SRE resource made by young people, for young people.

Here are a few sneaky pics, including some of the lads striking some poses in front of the backdrop – they just couldn’t help themselves!
