Situation

Young people with disabilities are as keen as their peers to achieve as much independence as possible during their teens. STEPPING OUT is a project of their own design which will enable them to develop independent living skills within a safe environment. The project will give them opportunities to manage social gatherings, share useful information by networking amongst the group, prepare snacks and drinks, and invite specialist speakers to inform them about further education and training opportunites, housing, welfare rights and so on.
