F & P Together is funded by Southend Borough Council through Short breaks for disabled children and young people.This offers young adults, 13 to 18 year old’s, an opportunity to meet up with friends outside of the school environment
What makes us Unique :
We listen to what young people want and we respond quickly to what is being asked. We are flexible and creative in our approach. We all live in Southend so understand what is going on in the community.
People who we Support :
We support anyone who has a disability that involves sensory, learning disabilities, communication difficulties, physical impairments as well as people with complex health needs. Also people with Autism and Asperger’s. If you live outside Southend we can support the role that we offer SBC residents but there would be a charge. This can be paid for using Direct Payments to support friendships.
F & P T recognises that friends live a long way away.
We are coming to Barking & Dagenham!
FaPT has now been funded for the Barking & Dagenham area. It will be for 12 - 18 year olds.
