Young Adult Schemes

Home What we do Young Adult Schemes

Challengers Young Adult Schemes are for disabled young people aged 18 to 25, and run at weekends, evenings, and school holidays.

Organised activities include trips out to the IMAX cinema, skiing, bowling, and lunch out at Pizza Express.

Every scheme has spaces for young people with complex impairments who need a higher level of support. Our fab dynamic team is ready to provide whatever level of support every individual needs. You can choose your preferred days and activities from our list of programmes.

Levels of Support:
We agree on what level of support an individual has with us through a number of means:

  • Information families, young people, carers and professionals give us
  • Information and conversations with families gathered at first visits
  • Care needs in relation to moving, behaviour, and ability to join in and take part with the activities provided
  • Reviewing incidents that take place
  • Our judgement, experience, and knowledge of what ensures each young person is safe and supported to join in and have fun at Challengers

Direct Payments
If you do not currently receive a personal budget, you may well be entitled to one. We have been given the following information around young adults being entitled to receive personal budgets/Direct Payments:

  • More and more young people will eligible be for a personal budget
  • At times this personal budget will include Direct Payments (paid to families), to provide choice and control for young people and their families around how they want to spend the funding they are provided with
  • More information for Surrey young adults from Surrey County Council
  • SILC can also provide advice, guidance and support managing personal budgets. They also have a lot of information on direct payments. For more information visit their website
