About Scarf’s Youth Club

From Autumn 2023 our Youth Club is moving to our new venue at New Milton Cricket Club, and will now be taking place on a Wednesday night – all the dates can be found on our calendar (see Calendar tab).  

Scarf’s Youth Club is for young people with additional needs ages 13-25 years and is a place for young people to relax, have fun and socialise. 

We have approximately 15-20 young people who come along each week. We have an art and craft table, music, games and puzzles, as well as an area for larger games, including pool.  Over the summer months we can be outside too, and have plenty of games young people can do in the garden – football is usually the most popular option!

We welcome visitors to host workshops at our Youth Club – in the past we have enjoyed visits from the New Forest National Parks Authority to talk about the forest around us, CODA music workshop which the young people really loved, a visit from the Wildlife Trust with an owl and hedgehog, and craft workshops.

The young people are fully supported and encouraged to socialise and try new things by our amazing team of support workers, volunteers and a Supervisor and Deputy.

Who we support

At our term-time clubs (Multi Sports and Youth Club) and Scarf 2 activities, where support workers are present, we strive to include everyone and our aim is that parents/carers do not need to stay for these activities. 

However, there may be times when we cannot meet a member’s needs without support from the parent/carer.  At present Scarf staff are not able to assist with lifting and intimate personal care needs – if a child/young person is likely to have needs in these areas during one of our clubs a parent/carer would need to stay on site and they would be responsible to support the child/young person’s needs during the activity.

Children/young people requiring extra support with their behaviour may not be able to attend all activities operated by Scarf.  Whilst Scarf support children and young adults with additional needs we also must consider the safety, health and wellbeing of all in the group including our support team.  For that reason, any acts of violence, aggression or abuse will not be tolerated.  Scarf will work with the support team and parents to understand the actions that lead to any incident and will decide whether Scarf can continue to support the individuals involved.

Please do contact a member of the Scarf team or Committee if you have any queries regarding the support needs of your child/young person.
