Welcome to our Outside School Activities Page
The Purple Penguin Club
Clubs have been designed for children aged 6-18 years of age, who have a disability or learning difficulty which makes it difficult for them to access mainstream clubs and groups
Ab Phab Youth Club
Ab Phab Youth Club started in 1997 by parents and carers of disabled children wanting a safe space for them to spend time with friends and have fun! Since then, we have grown and offer youth sessions three evenings a week, offsite trips and a residential week away.
Barking & Dagenham Progress Project
The Barking & Dagenham Progress Project is a voluntary sector partnership initiated in July 1998. We are an organisation for young people with disabilities. We can help you meet new friends, socialise, get fit, learn new skills and have your voice heard in our forum and in the wider community. Ages 8-25
Your Future starts here.
Evenings and weekends, 52 weeks a year, we are the place for 8-19-year-olds and up to 25 years old with additional needs in East London to make friends, try new things and start their fantastic future now.
Because Future is so much more than a youth club.
Within our £6.15million home, you’ll find a dedicated team of youth workers who are committed to helping young people discover their passion and purpose and to supporting them through the challenges young people face today.

Barking & Dagenham Short Breaks 4 Me
Short Breaks 4 Me is provided by London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council.
It is aimed at families in the borough that have a child or young person with a disability or complex health need who are eligible for a Short Breaks Personal Grant.
Through the website you are able to apply for a grant, manage your grant funds online and buy short breaks activities and provision.
Short breaks are fun breaks that offer enjoyable leisure activities for your child giving them the chance to have fun, make friends and grow in independence. They can also give you, and your other children, a break from caring responsibilities and an opportunity to re-charge your batteries.
Barking & Dagenham Community Hubs
