Wanna be Friends

This project is a scheme to help disabled young people in Enfield build relationships and social networks, involving 3 big events, which include a Valentines, Summer and Christmas Ball. The events have an amazing disco hosted by our own resident DJ, an evening meal as well as a mocktail bar! Only rule we have is that no parents are allowed! We have even had some romances blooming as a result!

Young disabled people from other local schools are invited as these schools fully support this community based project promoting inclusion, helping break down barriers to social isolation. The events are facilitated by West Lea staff but will give young people a chance to meet people their own age by experiencing exciting life opportunities.

Both the young people and their parents love these occasions to make friends and have fun but within a safe environment.
