Clubs

Below is a list of our term-time activities in order of increasing age. Information on Holiday Activities can be found here.

Please note that because of the funding received through the Local Authority, all activities for children and young people under the age of 18 are restricted to people living within Southampton city’s boundary. Furthermore, all of our activities will give priority to children and adults living at the family home in order to provide respite for unpaid carers, though we will be happy to accept members living in supported living if places are available.
