Young Adult Respite Service (YARS)
Young Adult Respite Service C.I.C (Y.A.R.S) is a fantastic programme, set up in 2017 to support the personal and social development of disabled young adults across Knowlsey.
Our aim is to provide disabled young adults (aged 18 – 35) an opportunity to meet like-minded people in a safe environment. Whilst developing friendships, confidence, independence and engaging in new and exciting activities. In addition to this, providing much-needed respite for parents/carers.
To date, we have engaged with over 70 disabled young adults and stayed in some fantastic places, such as Barcelona, Dublin, The Lake District and North Wales to name a few.
All of our residentials are fully inclusive and offer a wide range of activities, depending on the needs and ability of the individuals, it really is a unique programme which enables disabled young adults to engage and access opportunities that they may never had the chance to previously.
