The Leeds United Foundation are continuing to run Jumbo Youth Club sessions for youngsters suffering with a disability every week.

Having partnered with the Leeds Community Foundation and Jimbo’s Fund in 2021, two social club programmes for youngsters were launched covering those aged between 12 and 24.

There are two sessions hosted every Friday evening at the Ramgarhia Sikh Sports Centre in Leeds, with the first taking place from 4pm to 6pm for Under-17s and the second session taking place straight afterwards, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm for those aged Under-24.

The sessions proved incredibly successful during the last year given some of the restrictions in place due to COVID-19, and this year the sessions will aim to be bigger and better, giving young people who have a physical or learning disability the chance to come along and have some fun whilst also learning lots of new skills.

Each session will provide the participants the opportunity to meet on a regular basis, to enjoy a number of different activities and develop their abilities. Those taking part in the sessions also play a role in deciding what activities to plan, helping them to develop and improve their engagement levels and become more independent.

Some of the activities involved in the sessions include arts and crafts, sports and fitness sessions, teamwork activities, life skills, discussions around healthy eating and hygiene, confidence skills workshops, and sessions around budgeting and finance.

Please note that all coaches from the Leeds United Foundation are FA licensed, DBS checked, and first aid trained.
